    These are the best! I made them to take to a family dinner for Christmas and refused to tell anyone how they were made until they tried them. I added a chocolate avocado frosting that I found on the Beyond Diet website. Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe, which I shared. These are most definitely a keeper! FYI – I used 1/2 c. coconut sugar in place of the steviva blend, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

      So glad you enjoyed them! :)
