This is another magic recipe of my father-in-laws we all make it every holiday. They never hang around long to go stale. They are great in gift baskets, and the kids just love them. These are great because you can change them up by using other kinds of nuts or adding a bit of chili powder to them and give them a bit of a kick. Great at parties or get togethers with hot chocolate, coffee, milk, alcoholic drinks, non-alcoholic drinks, kids holiday parties at school or at home, anywhere.....ENJOY!!!!!!
