Rolo cupcakes

I don’t actually know who created this recipe as I’ve seen lots of variations on it. But what I can say is who ever created it needs a big high 5 because they are super tasty! It really is one of the nicest sweet treats I’ve tasted whilst following the slimming world plan and also they are super simple to make too. These are great to make with your children too as I know my son loves making then (and also loves eating them all too!!)
