I’m not going to lie and call these healthy, but geez they sure are yummy.  I love anything caramel and these certainly hit the spot every time. They are really quick to make and taste amazing. Drizzle over some melted chocolate, or like I did, just some runny chocolate icing.

You could even add some choc chips to the mixture prior to baking for an extra sweet flavour.

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!
