Honey Squares Recipe

Heat 1 cup honey and 1 cup peanut butter in a saucepan. Stir until smooth and remove from heat, then stir in 1 cup of carob powder. Mix. Then add 1 cup of shelled sunflower seeds, 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of chopped nuts, 1/2 cup of coconut, and 1/2 cup of toasted sesame seeds. Press the mixture into a buttered 8 inch square pan. Chill overnight and cut into squares. Yield: about two pounds.

Honey squares make nice gifts when either wrapped in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and tied with brightly colored yarn . . . or tucked into decorated coffee cans or colorful boxes or baskets. They're even appreciated when stacked up on festively ornamented paper plates. Use your imagination — the whole family's imagination! — when packaging your "kitchen goodie" presents.
