I used to be a contributor to a different food blog.. long ago! I had posted this recipe there, because it was one of my favorites. That blog is long lost, so I thought I would bring this recipe back to life! Whoever discovered the incredible blend of chocolate and caramel is amazing! It also makes a bunch, which means you can share.
