Melting Moments


I had never tried Melting Moments before. One Sunday morning we went to the local fresh market which is held on once a month up on Beechmont. My husband bought me a bag of Melting Moments and I tried them, they were delicious but a bit sweet for me. This year, I have baked Melting Moments many times, until I got the taste I like ; not too sweet and a little bit tangy. The combination of sweet and sour reminds me of Thai tastes. I baked a big box of the Melting Moments for Beechmont Netball Fundraising. It was a very cold day, people bought them to have with coffee. Yes, all sold out first. Here is the recipe that I baked.
