** These are high in calories, and fat but this is something you have once in awhile.  Next time I might try Coconut milk, the stuff you use to make pina coladas and see if it’s lowers the calories and fat etc.

They freeze great, I place them in an air tight container lined with wax paper and then top it off with plastic wrap.
I defrost one when ever I want to indulge.

This batch is ready for the freezer.
