Holiday snacks are everywhere right now probably tempting you as you read this…I know this because our holiday treats are in such close proximity to my computer, it is all I can do to keep typing! It is, though, truly the only time of year you are surrounded by a lot of these special treats. Certain ones only make an annual appearance right around mid-December and are not here to see New Year’s Eve. A classic example of this for my family is Muddy Buddy mix.
