To celebrate making it through this week, I found it only appropriate to create a candy recipe, this being of course my favorite category of recipe and possibly my favorite food group. Yes, for some of us, candy is a food group.

  4. Drop by heaping tablespoonful onto a parchment lined baking sheet
  5. Allow to cool
  6. If need be (as in it’s too hot in your kitchen for these to set) transfer clusters to a plate and cool in freezer
