    I have now made these twice, once as cupcakes and once as a 13X9 cake. All I can say is that I love it and have shared the website and this recipe with Paleo friends who are now sharing it on to their friends. Thank you so much for so many wonderful ideas!

    These were really good! My 12 year old son made these the other night (with my supervision) for a math recipe project. He needed a recipe with lots of different fractions, and I had been waiting for an occasion to make these! They had to do conversions on paper (1/2, 1 1/2 and double recipe) and then we made a triple recipe so he would have enough to share (plus leave some here!). Taste just like a Reese’s!

    Has anyone tried the coconut milk approach? Just wondering if they come out with the same consistency since heavy whipping cream tends to be thicker than coconut milk.
