Despite the name, these sweet, gooey treats are AWESOME!!! Best when eaten day of making, but can be reheated in the microwave several days later to taste just as great. Every time I make these, I just can't resist ripping off a chunk every time I walk by them. They disappear quickly!! I don't add nuts because my family doesn't care for them, but I'm sure it's equally as great wit
