J. Scott Wilson. When I first read the article I was hesitant to try it; the main ingredient is not a snack you normally think would be in a recipe like this; but I threw caution to the wind and went for it; and I was truly surprised at the response I was given for these totally addicting treats.
At first your friends may turn their noses up at the idea of this "candy like" snack however one taste will have them hooked and you will be hard pressed to tear them away from the bowl.
It is particularly popular with the guys making it the perfect nibble for your Super Bowl party. It was highly recommended in the article that you should...
"Make two batches or be banished to the kitchen before the end of the first quarter with orders to make more or suffer severe beatings."
Luckily I heeded the warning and made a double batch but even a double batch only made it to half-time.
