Oh yeah guys… these are a thing. A really good thing I may add.
All I wanted yesterday was a gooey, doughy, caramely “thing” in my mouth. And why not throw some chocolate in there as well, and you might as well say I’m in heaven. You must give these a try.
“How good are they?” you might ask. Well i’ll put it this way: my Dad had one, and when he eats baked goods they do not settle right with his stomach and he usually has to go lie down. He risked the pain he gets from baked goods, to have one of these. Now go make them before you drool all over the floor.
