It is easy peasy to make...equal amounts of M&Ms, candy corn and dry roasted peanuts. I have heard it described as a Snickers like snack and if you leave out the M&Ms then it tastes like a Pay Day candy bar. Whatever floats your boat. It is great to mix up, put in small cellophane bags to give as Happies to teachers, friends and neighbors.
Speaking of neighbors, I am so glad to have John and Jean next door! They looked after our place for us while we were away. We stopped at the Peach Park in Clanton, Alabama on the way home from the beach and picked up some Apple Butter and Peach Butter to thank them for their kindness. If any of you find yourselves on I 65 traveling through Alabama, be sure and stop at the Peach Park. Peaches are found in season but they sell lots of yummy things all year. The homemade ice cream there is simply delicious. I got a big cone of Banana while Hubs got peach. My dear husband also loaded up on Boiled Peanuts. He got enough to put in the freezer to enjoy all winter!:) Boiled peanuts are a Southern Delicacy but one I do not care for myself. Green peanuts are boiled and then you shell them and eat them. To me they taste rather like black eyed peas but my Savannah born better half just LOVES them.
So we are back home and as Dorothy so aptly put it, There is no place like home!! And for a homebody like me, Home is the dearest place on earth!
