We’ve all seen those “even picky eaters will love” posts that test the will of the human spirit with ways to make ordinary food look horrifying. This isn’t one of those posts.
This recipe has been well received by almost everyone daring enough to give it a try, and has earned the approval of many a selective eater. Assuming you enjoy the taste of chocolate, these also have a really easy to handle texture, (no lumps or bumps), and are really easy to make. They also freeze well… if you can keep them in the house that long!
Black beans, baby! Enjoy!!
