These are delicious! I love the sweet with a little salt from the peanuts. My husband really enjoyed them too. This was easy to make so it will be a treat we make often!
Hi Carrie! I’m glad that you and your husband enjoyed these! I also like that salty/sweet combo. The salt being very light makes it not overpower the other flavors. Thank you for your review!
