Poor Man's Millionaires Candy



This week’s theme is Christmas Cookies and Snacks. Here comes another one of my admissions – I haven’t made cookies from scratch since I was in home ec class in high school, that’s FACS class for you youngsters!  I’ve never been a huge fan of sweets, I’ve always favored salty snacks instead.  However, this treat satisfies cravings for both!  I received my first batch of Poor Man’s Millionaires Candy as a Christmas present from one of my families when I was teaching and absolutely loved them because it was so simple that I can give you the recipe in about sixty seconds or less.

Poor Man's Millionaires CandyI like the Ener-G (Gluten Free) Foods Pretzels , but only bought them for special occasions, like making these treats for myself at Christmas.  Why did I buy them so infrequently?  Because I THOUGHT they were expensive.  Now, I’ve learned to shop through Vitacost!  If you’ve never shopped with Vitacost before, create an account and you’ll receive a $10 credit on your first $30 or more order.  I’ll also receive the same $10 credit with my next $30 purchase.  Then you can refer your friends to earn the credits!  Vitacost is a great source for online shopping for cooking, cleaning, personal care, baby, and pet care needs.  Check them out today!
