These nuts come in handy on so many occasions! If you’re hosting a party, this slightly sweet and salty snack make a great addition to the line up. They also offer a nice change of pace from cookies and candy as a homemade gift (just store in a mason jar and wrap with a beautiful ribbon). Plus, they're not bad fuel, either.
