    Sweet Diva's Note:

    Adapted from Taste of Home, this tempting treat never lasts long around our house! The original recipe did not call for the dried fruits, but once when we were having neighborhood get-together I threw them in. Everyone loved the original recipe, but the response I got from the fruited version was so great that now I almost always make it that way. Both versions are sweetly satisfying! **NOTE** Cooking time is based on using my microwave method instead of the double-boiler and also includes cooling/set-up time.

      This is an excellent mix... salty & sweet! we were given this at Christmas and I ate most of the bowl so I had to find a way to replace the treat and I found this recipe that is very similar. The only difference was that our friend added m&m's to the mix and no dried fruit. I plan to add the fruit because I am sure it will be very tasty! You could get very creative with your "extras".
