    These are so simple but really good! I used Kerrygold Irish salted butter and they are just sweet enough. I threw a small handful of chocolate chips in, but I can see how melting the chocolate and drizzling would be a nicer texture. Will do that next time!

    1. Hi Christine. I’ve never tried this and it’s hard for me to say if the ratios will work. When I make almond milk again, I will try this – and if you happen to give it a try before I get to it, please let me know if they worked out for you:)

  2. I love to try new recipes and this one is next on my list. It looks amazingly delicious! Thank you for sharing!
