You Made It!

Thank you for this idea! I have been out of bird seed for about a week now. Can't justify going to the store…so I just made a batch using your video as a guide! I happened to have just enough coconut oil. Peanuts were left from Easter Taffy Apple Salad. I used apples and cinnamon oatmeal too. Great idea, and filled my need to create for the day! —Jill V.
