Don't worry if this is all sounding a bit too savory--since this is a candy there is plenty of sugar, too! I also add nuts and vanilla extract for extra flavor. Pistachios are the traditional nut of choice, but almonds also work well. Want a bit more sweetness? Try adding some grated chocolate at the end!
