These are sooooooo good! With that combination of ingredients, how could they not be? The sugared crusts of the cups are crunchy, yet melt in your mouth. A little tip: I used aluminum muffin pans - I like the results from using aluminum rather than non- stick. If you do use non-stick pans, make sure to check the cups as they are baking, as they will brown much faster
