    So easy and delicious. I made double the volume, slightly larger and added on an extra 10 mins. I’m not sure they will last the day because they are so good.

    • Hi Elaine,
      thank you so much for trying out the recipe! I’m thrilled to hear that you found it easy and delicious. It’s always a good sign when something is so tasty that it might not last the day! Enjoy every bite! Thanks for sharing your experience.

    • Hi, Denice
      this is just for decoration. It’s made of a little bit of peanut butter, cocoa powder and maple syrup or you could just drizzle some melted dairy-free dark chocolate.
