Great appetizer or have on hand for treat or snacks. Everyone asks for the recipe.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is one of those snacks where you cannot eat just one. You keep eating because they have a taste and texture you will crave. They're chewy, crunchy, and a little bit salty. Leave a bowl of these on the counter and your family will grab a few every time they pass it. It is a fun snack for watching football but fancy enough to put out for a New Year's Eve party. They'd make a delicious hostess gift too.
