I whipped these up in no time this afternoon. They look so pretty and taste delicious. I used salted peanuts because we love the sweet and salty combo. Thanks for posting!

I made this as posted! I loved the little candies. They were easy to make, and my kids loved them. I'll make these again. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup Tag!
