  3. Carmel Arundell-White

    Easy to make.
    Verdict was yummy and just like we use to get as kids

    I added some sea salt flakes to make salted caramel

  4. Pro tip, make a double batch so there’s actually some left over for lunch boxes after you’ve finished ‘testing’ it

    I didn’t use any nuts as I didn’t have any on hand. Also the caramel took a little longer for me but it turned out so yum

  5. 5 stars
    A classic brought back to life. A must try that won’t disappoint. I doubled the recipe, enough for taste testing and sharing.
