It tasted like chicken. Except chewier.
Of course everything taste like chicken when you deep fry it and serve it with a creamy sauce.
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be…
…but I don’t feel the need to ever eat it again.
These are one of my favorite things I’ve made so far this holiday season. They kind of remind me of these but a little more gourmet.
I had some caramels from Halloween that I never got around to using and saw these and thought great!
Sure they start out with a sugar cookie dough mix but there’s enough love and work put into them to not make you feel guilty at all.
They look kind of plain on the outside but then you bite into a gooey chocolate caramel heaven.
