It’s gooey, it’s sweet, and it’s the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day! This combo has the perfect balance of sweet and salty. A great treat to give to your loved ones this Valentine’s Day!
Have you ever had a treat that you just can’t stop eating? You go back to it over and over because it’s so delicious and it’s just staring you in the face. This is one of those treats. We made a batch and I had every intention of packaging it up and giving it to the neighbors. My husband, kids, and I ended up eating the ENTIRE thing ourselves. It was so worth it!
I love this treat because it makes a large batch to give to loved ones for Valentine’s Day while keeping some for yourself. Simply put it in plastic cups or bowls, cover it with plastic wrap, and you’re all set! This treat has just the right amount of saltiness for all the sweetness. So good and so easy to make.

I just made this treat, and it is simply delicious. My only concern is how to serve it . It is quite stocky, like really really sticky. I was thinking of putting it in a. large bowl as you suggested, and adding a scoop so guests can serve themselves. I am wondering if it can even be scooped. Truth be told, there may not be any left for my Bunco ladies tomorrow night, because I can’t stop eating it! I sprinkled some coarse ground salt on top, and oh boy that’s good! Thanks for the recipe!!
