I’ve always heard that a person either craves salt or sweet. Me, I crave both equally. I will crave something salty to snack on, but immediately afterwards you will hear me say, “I need a little something sweet now.” Really, every time. Just ask my husband. So, what better than to make a salty snack a little sweet? This is a perfect combination and it’s so easy to do! There isn’t that much sugar added, but it gives it just the right touch. Who says cocoa is just for drinking?
