Sweet & Salty Pecan Crunch

Say hello the essentials: keys to the car, apartment, mailbox, parent’s home (woo, Go Hawks!), mini wallet and the Fuel Saver. That’s right, essentials.

Let’s just say I am a frequent Hy-Vee patron. From utilizing their Fuel Saver to buying things I don’t need in their Health section due to  the 10% discount Wednesday and Saturday (you’re welcome), I’m pretty sure some of the employees recognize me. All good. A gal’s got to eat… and bake.  It’s no surprise that the recipe I’m featuring is a little throwback from one of their Seasons issues: Sweet ‘n’ Salty Pecan Crunch.

You’ve been warned – delicious, addictive & you will not want to share.
