During yesterday’s SRC reveal, I spied a recipe that I just had to make.
I’m not one for sweet treats, but my husband loves them!
And it was a plus that I already had all the ingredients…
This was the first time I’ve ever used sweetened condensed milk…
WOWSERS, just looking at the stuff raised my BS 100 points!
I followed the measurements exactly, but my bars were more super gooey chocolately than actual bars.
I hardly doubt anyone will mind, because they tasted amazing!
I’m sending them to work with my husband tomorrow with some vanilla ice cream.
I’m betting there gone in 60 seconds!
A big thanks Rebekah for the baking inspiration/motivation.
