I like “sweet” treats that are also salted. In fact, I don’t like anything with caramel unless it’s salted. Charlotte from Buttercream and Dreams bought these delicious bites with her to a recent meeting and they were just delicious. Lauren and I may have eaten them ALL. They are also gluten free and suitable for the Paleo plan for those of you that may be following the regime.

This recipe makes 10-12 pieces so just double everything if you are greedy like me and want to shovel them in like there’s no tomorrow. Perfect served with coffee or my favourite Pukka “Revitalise” tea.

Carnations optional.
