The holidays are near but more importantly, so are exams. Which not only means endless nights in the library, but stress eating and sleepless nights. Study snacks are often cheap, convenient and sugary (a.k.a anything that can come from a vending machine). These options can become exhaustive and expensive. The following recipe promises a satisfying alternative that is both budget and time friendly. You can make this in a large batch and serve as you please, take it on the go with crackers or make it the centerpiece for a study group date. Note: this can be made and served hot or cold, all up to your preference to decide!
