These are the perfect little bite sized treat to have with a cup of tea instead of a bickie or after dinner instead of raiding the chocolate or lollies. They are so yummy, but very satisfying so it is actually easy to stop at one – which is always a good thing!
Everyone that has tried these has loved them so I thought I’d share the recipe with you guys too – it is super quick and easy!
PS – my kids LOVE them too!!!
