SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (GOOD THINGS UTAH) — Our plant based chef, Aida Woodward, joined us in the GTU kitchen for a yummy adult treat perfect for Halloween. These delicious little nuggets of “carmel like” goodness are sure to please any sweet tooth and you’ll barely be able to believe that they don’t have any sugar.
