Praline Crunch Cups

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Vicki in CT

Perfectly splendid dessert. Can make ahead so perfect for quick prep or for when company comes. For RSC. Regarding the phyllo dough sheets: ****ATTN: I have seen both 9X13" size phyllo dough sheets and 12X20" size sheets. You do the math to determine if you can get 8 squares out of one size sheet or not. So you may not need two sets but only one.

These were delicious. The only thing is that I found I had way more topping than I needed. It was tasty to munch on though, so this isn't all bad :) I will certainly make this again.
