Good served warm or cooled or cold. Rich flavor and great with ice cream. I had a hard time sharing! 

Not everyone likes nuts, so I covered half with chopped pecans instead of mixing them in and it was good both ways.

Although I made these around Christmas, the deep golden color reminded me of autumn. I think I’m going to have to make some again in the fall.
