Sweet Vanilla Compost

Want a healthier heart? Lower cholesterol? More energy?
I have your answer right here! NUTS!
Eating nuts are a simple way to improve your health-and with this recipe you will enjoy doing it! Who would think something so sweet and so addictive could also be so good for you?!

These sweet little treats are extremely easy to make and smell divine! :) The entire house will smell like vanilla-y goodness, you will hardly be able to wait for them to come out of the oven...but don't I repeat DO NOT eat them as soon as you take them out of the extremely hot oven! It will burn your mouth so badly you will not be able to enjoy these little beauties. Also, be aware that when you take them out of the oven they will not be crispy and crunchy...just give them a few minutes to cool-they will crisp up nicely and be absolutely delectable! Enjoy! :)
