I feel so bad- I made these as part of my "Christmas Goodies" list, and I have neglected to review them. Sorry about that. But now that that's out of the way, let's talk about these little cups. It will soon be illegal to eat them, I fear. Previous review definitely hit the nail on the head with "decadent". I made them as directed. They are very sweet and rich, but since there is granola on top, they're good for you, right? Seriously, I will more than likely make these again, but probably only around the holidays, when I don't feel so bad about being a pig.
A bit labor intensive but delicious! I made these back in 2006, when the recipe came out, but wanted to review them now and add the recipe to my online cookbook.
Decadent--and super easy to make. They are very rich! Instead of the granola bar topping I just sprinkled on chopped salted peanuts because it is something I most always have on hand. This recipe is definitely going into the 'keeper' file.
