I forgot to mention in my earlier review that I didn't put on any salt on them and it tasted just fine!

I made this recipe last year and it was utterly FANTASTIC!!! Both my husband and myself enjoyed them-it didn't last very long at home- and the bunch I sent with my husband for his co-workers disappeared quickly, as well!This is an amazingly easy and delicious recipe! I will definitely make some more this year for both snacking and Christmas presents!Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! :)
