Pro tip, make a double batch so there’s actually some left over for lunch boxes after you’ve finished ‘testing’ it

I didn’t use any nuts as I didn’t have any on hand. Also the caramel took a little longer for me but it turned out so yum

I have found in an airtight container can stay fresh for 2 weeks

We ate all ours within a day or so to be honest lol
Not certain how long it would stay good so perhaps do a test run first?
