Now this is a treat that the grandkids will go absolutely wild for! With just four ingredients you don’t have to worry about much when it comes to this super simple recipe. These bite-sized squares not only taste mouthwateringly good but they’re great for a bit of a guilty pleasure treat when you feel like something deliciously rich and sweet.

They’re also fantastic for whipping up in bulk, cutting into easy squares and taking to family get togethers, birthdays or picnics. They’ll stay fresh in an airtight container in the fridge for about three days, otherwise pop them in the freezer to enjoy them for even longer!
