      These little treats are so cute and delicious! For a chocolate and caramel lover like myself, they can't be beat! I followed the recipe exactly and they were wonderful; a little time consuming, but definitely worth it.

      Labor intensive if you are as picky as I am (I had to find only unbroken nuts meats in the bag), but make a delicious and fancy addition to my Christmas cookie trays.
