This is a great snack to keep in an airtight container for late night munchies. It is also great for bake sales or gifts...put about a cup in a baggie and tie closed with some ribbon.

A fantastic snack! I made this for my 2 year old's class for Valentines Day! I figured they would get enough "junk" that the parents might appreciate a healthier alternative! I left out the peanuts and added whole wheat alphabet pretzels instead. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Yummy! Easy to make! Sometimes I add a cup of thin pretzels to the mix. Love the way the carmel tastes with the pretzels! Every time you stir make sure to take about a little spoonful to munch on!
