Made these last night for Valentine\'s day. So delicious!! My first foray into using aquafaba & the results were great! I will be exploring that ingredient further.
I have Celiac\'s but no issue with dairy, so I added a dollop of marscapone cheese to the top and we all just loved it! Thanks for the recipe!
