These were an absolute breeze. They didn't even require an electronic mixer. The hardest part for me was figuring out how to store them. An airtight container that wasn't a plastic bag (my go-to)? I thought about using glass, but Paul suggested a brown paper bag so we decided to try it. It worked perfectly. I made these on Sunday and they were still crunchy Thursday night. I followed Dorie's suggestion and used salted cashews. I think these would be perfect alongside hot chocolate, or as the base of an ice cream sandwich (I wish I had noticed that suggestion sooner!). They were good on their own, but not especially exciting. Charlotte enjoyed the idea of these--she asked for them every time she saw us eating them--but didn't actually like them very much. I think nuts are still hard for her to chew. Oh well. More for us!
