MIXED NUT AND COCONUT BRITTLE

This one is a perfect idea for gifts to some one you want to give a delicious gift. And it gives an instant energy after long working hours. Now a days my hubby is working for too long hours and he is getting very tired after he came home. Before he only take breakfast in the morning and roti and subji for lunch and he use to come home little early. Now he is having a long gap between lunch and dinner so I want to fill that gap with some healthy and protein rich snack. And also it helps a lot for working women coming back home after a long working day some times they feel like to eat instantly before they jump in to the kitchen this will help you a lot. Hope you people like my idea.
