Honey Jumbles

I just realised that I have been using honey and spices in alot of things lately, I guess it’s because it’s winter and the smells and tastes make you feel warm and sweet.

Have been thinking about making Honey Jumbles for a while and saw them over at Liss’s the other day and definitely had to try them as they look and believe me they smell soooo good! 

My critics advise me they are delicious and very moreish.
