These are so easy, quick, and delicious! Glad I didn't wait to try them. I did omit the red sugar crystals, so we've renamed them muddy birds nests. Thanks.

Easy and tasty but they never made it to the freezer the way I had planned. Worked well in my Christmas tins. Thanks.

Sweet, salty, and very simple to make. I'll make this one again for my Christmas trays. Very good.
