I make these for my girls' sports parties as well as for my own girls' night out parties. They are always a hit. Instead of putting the nuts, I add mini chocolate bits. They are the best!!!

YUM!!! I use chocolate syrup instead of caramel and forfeit the nuts. But I needed to make a quick dessert for my crush and found this! It was a hit! Thanks so much! It is now my signature dessert :)
