Looking for a snack for your boyfriend who is flying to Vancouver? Okay… how about… are you looking for a fun snack to make?! Is that better?
This week, I wanted to make something small that I could give to Dave to take on the plane with him. Okay… plane… peanuts. It didn’t take too long to decide. I came across a recipe I had saved from Bake Your Day, a really awesome blog with some really gorgeous pictures of food.
The original recipe is meant for mixed nuts… but I wanted to keep the airplane theme alive and use only peanuts. This one’s a winner! … and don’t call me Shirley.
