Sweet & Savoury Chickpeas That Everyone Will Love, Damnit

Chickpeas can be such a divisive little legume, you either like it or hate it. Even when you like it, you might only like it one certain way (roasted) and not another (garlic and caramalised onion hummus).
For me, I actually really like roasted chickpeas, but only a few at a time so it doesn’t turn into dry, thick paste in my mouth. I also love garlic hummus but not that fond of plain hummus.

However, today I thought I’d give you a sweet and savory option if you want to give chickpeas another go, or want to scoff down a quick and easy snack.

 

For the sweet option I’m going to do just a simple maple syrup and for savory we’re going to get friendly with some seasonings. The great thing about both of these are that they are easily customisable, so if you want spices and a little heat, you can easily do that, or if you’re more into a honey-maply concoction, that’s super easy too.

For today’s Halloween post … we’re cheating. Well, let’s not call it cheating; we’re going to be upgrading a German classic treat into a cutie Halloweenie treat!

Great save by me yet again.

This Halloween Treat Transformation can be done with prepackaged biscuits like Twirls, Caramello Koalas, White Chocolate fingers, or treats you might usually make like White Christmas chocolates, cookies, Rice Krispie balls or bars and white chocolate pretzels.
The cookie I’m going to be Halloweening is a ginger spice cookie/biscuit called pfeffernüsse. This German treat was something that reminds me of my nanna, who would always have them on hand when my sister and I went to visit her.

I’m going to make a conscious effort this year to give you some Halloween-themed posts! To start it off I’m going to share my mum’s recipe for chocolate spiders. My sister and I loved these as kids and if tomorrow mum called and said she made these, we’d probably rush over there in two seconds.

It’s true, mums make the best foods.
