This was tasty. I did have to cream it quite a bit to get rid of the granular feel from the powder mix. I omitted both the nuts and the olives since my husband doesn't like them. I used the leftover mixture to make quesadillas later, and it was great there as well.

This is a delicious snack and perfect for game day! Instead of pecans I used a nut/dried cherry trail mix and it looked very "pretty" as well!
