On Friday afternoon, I was looking for the perfect bonfire snack for my friends and I to munch on that evening. Of course, s’mores were on the menu that evening but I wanted something else that would pair with them. Crunchy, salty and sweet it’s nearly impossible to not have a second bowl. And that they did. The entire batch was gone by the end of the night – which I love… I guess it was a hit!
