Monkey Munch

I have been wanting to make "Monkey Munch" for awhile now and decided to take the plunge today. It's really good! Don't care for the TV show that promotes it, but will definitely make this again!


Enjoy!

Hopefully it doesn't take long at the dealership! I have to say, I'm very impressed with the Toyota service center around here(though I've only gone in for an oil change), they are pretty great! And you get free popcorn too :o)

This sounds SO good! I've eaten it at a couple of people's houses, but never tracked down the recipe. Thanks to you, I now don't have to. :) I will definitely have to try this out.
