Salted Peanut Chews

Doreen Fish


I was at a show today with my soap....a lot of different vendors as this was "Seedy Saturday". There were a bunch of women beside me called "Garden Hoe" (love the name!)and they were selling this great cookbook and of course I can't resist another for my collection...they were serving these treats and they were so darn good I couldn't stop eating them!! Here is the recipe taken from my new, I haven't made them but I sure can vouch for how good they are and I'll be making these real soon!!. Hope you all enjoy!!!

This is pretty much how they look...
