Caramel Chai Chocolate Squares

Caramel Chai Chocolate Squares

What is it about the cooler temps that makes us all want to cozy up with yummy sweets and homemade eats? I guess it’s our way of hibernating and preparing for the winter season ahead. Well, I am just like everyone else and there is nothing like a little sweet with a tea (or lets be honest a glass of wine) and a movie that gives me all the fall feels. That said, I always like to keep my health goals in mind when I indulge. 

 These  devilishly decadent Chai Caramel Squares will do just the trick. They are gluten free, vegan and clean enough to let you love your sweets and eat them too!
