About

The recipe I created uses all products in its natural form therefore, if you think it has a high fat content, it is all natural and in moderation a healthy saturated fat. The original recipe consists of sweetened condensed milk and sugar but I replaced it with coconut concentrate and agave nectar. It makes for a great snack or even a dessert for those that have a sweet tooth, ;). Ryan snagged another one today while I was out! Naughty boy! Enjoy the recipe for all its purest forms.
