Pepero Nude Chocolate

Nude Chocolate is hollow inside and the inside is covered with a thin layer of chocolate while the top parts are also covered with chocolate. It's got the ideal ratio of chocolate to biscuit in my opinion, so if you're one of those people who are not into snacks that are extremely sweet, consider these an option!
