I am very excited to share this recipe with you guys. I stumbled across it on Pinterest when I was looking for something sweet to bake. The blog I found this on is called Crazyforcrust.
If you are looking for a bake sale treat or simply something to eat yourself, these are a wonderful option. My family and friends quickly gobbled them up so I’d say they were hit. 🙂
A few tips for this recipe:
1. When you are finished making the batter, it will be super thick. When I got finished, I thought I’d done something wrong so I thought I should inform you that it’s perfectly normal.
2. Don’t trust the cook time on these; test them with a toothpick before letting them cool. I ended up having to bake mine about 8 minutes longer than was called for. Make sure the toothpick is clean with nothing sticking to it.
3. Using salted caramels instead of the Caramel Bits gives them the slightest essence of salt and it fits in perfectly with the flavors.
I hope you enjoy this fantastic treat as much as I did! 🙂
