I have seen several variations of this recipe and finally decided to choose one that sounded good and give them a try.  I made these for a weekend away with a handful of other couples.  They were a huge hit and I’d make them again and again and again!  We had a second weekend getaway with those same couples recently and I opted to make some other snacks to share for the fall season and I heard from several they were disappointed there were no almonds this time.  I won’t make that mistake again.
