Ingredients:
Note: The ratio of cacao powder to cacao butter is 1:1; powder to maple syrup is about 3:1 or 4:1. Cacao powder and butter are available at many health food stores and online.

Any combination of the following: pecans, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, goji berries, hemp seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, natural peanut butter or almond butter, cinnamon.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
