On the 3rd Day of Sugar my true love gave to me Sweet & Salty Candy and let me tell you it’s amazing! You guys, this stuff should come with a “highly addictive” warning label, I’m not even kidding. It’s sweet, salty, slightly crunchy but kind of soft at the same time. Oh my heck it’s dangerous stuff.
There are so many reasons you need to make this. . . it’s so, so simple, is done in less than 15 minutes, it’s insanely good aaaand it will make a great neighbor gift. Just throw some in a cellophane bag or box, tie a ribbon around it and your neighbors will be loving you and hating you at the same time.
You can also put it in these darling treat bags I buy at Zurchers. I love them and they come in all different colors and designs. Love, love, love them!
Trust me when I say you need to make this, but just remember it’s highly addictive so proceed with caution when you take that first bite.
