If you are hunkered down inside avoiding the cold, watching sports, or finally reading that book you haven’t had time for - these sugary/salty snacks should be your new winter companion. They take all of 30 minutes to make and smell heavenly as they bake. The dark glistening sugar will tempt you.
After all the heavy holiday treats, it’s nice to find one that is just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth - but won’t ruin your New Year’s Resolutions.
Since they are fast to put together, these make a great weekend snack when you don’t want to take the time for something complicated.

There are microwave directions, which I'll try soon. Next time I’m going to use half real butter and half vegetable oil for a different flavor.
