This disappeared fast in my house. I also melted the chips so they covered everything and it was great.

I made this for my friends bridal shower in april and I still am getting requests for the recipe in november. I used almonds instead of macadamia nuts to be a little more cost effective. The sweet and salty mix is perfect!
