    • They are indeed dangerous, Celeste, not exactly but kind of healthy! haha That’s why it’s an indulgent treat and we should really just have one square, and share the rest with others. A little goes a long way! 🙂

    • I’m so happy that you tried the recipe and love it as much as I do!!! It’s always such a pleasure to hear that the recipe works!! 🙂 Thank you for telling me! Have an amazing weekend! XO, Violet
