Katherine made these the other day. They are great! We think they’d be just as good without the additional sweetener and plan to try them that way next.
Fantastic! Thanks for the feedback on this Sarah. And if you young taste buds think they could be good without the sweetener, then it’s probably a safe bet 🙂
oooh, I miss a good popcorn ball! reminds me of childhood holidays. I love the chocolate – definitely need to try this soon!
