I’m so glad that my amazing Mom (the original chocolate lady) shared this yummy recipe! My entire family loved them! (The last two are hiding in my freezer!)
Then I check the pantry to see what ingredients are setting on the shelves. I see a bag of milk chocolate/caramel swirl chips and then some oatmeal for a “healthy” balance to the sweet decadence of the chips!
Flavorful! Chocolate! Easy to hold in your hand with a cup of coffee or glass of milk! Decision made!
