You guys.

These things are indescribably good.  They’re the perfect combination of sweet, salty and crunchy.  They’re literally everything you could ever want in a snack (or a meal if you’re like me and literally can’t stop eating them until you’re full!).

I make them every single year and without fail (despite doubling and tripling the batch) we finish them all off.

Just look at that little guy up there.  Does it get any better??

These also make an awesome Christmas gift.  I love to buy cute little tins, fill them up and distribute them out to friends and family.  I promise you it will make your gift giving one to remember.

A woman in my dad’s office used to make and gift these to us every year and it’s actually what inspired me to start making them!  Our whole family would talk about how much we loved them (whilst devouring the entire tin, which incidentally never seemed to be big enough) every year so I finally decided to just start making them myself.

They’re also so simple to pull together.  It’s about 5 minutes of prep before they go into the oven and then all you have to do is stir them every 15 minutes or so while they bake.  Trust me, if I was able to continue making these with an infant, I promise you’ll be able to do it!

And if you’re lucky enough to have any leftover, they’re awesome thrown on top of salads, put into trail mix or mixed with roasted veggies.

recipe from two peas and their pod (the only change I make is to use 1/2 teaspoon salt rather than 1 teaspoon)
