Honey Snacks

Honey-Coated Frozen Fruit


¼ c. Cox Honeyland's Honey (or less) to 1 pint container


Drizzle honey over berries, then turn lightly with a big salad fork just enough to coat them evenly. Strawberries frozen in this manner are shiny when served with a slight glaze which looks most appetizing.



3 parts Cox Honeyland's Honey to 5 parts warm water. Warm enough to dissolve honey but not hot.

3 c. Cox Honeyland's Honey to 5 c. water for 2 quarts


Use lemon juice to prevent browning.



4 c. uncooked oats, quick or old fashioned

1 ½ c. shredded coconut

1 c. pecans, finely chopped 

½ c. sesame seeds

¾ tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ c. Cox Honeyland's Honey

1/3 c. vegetable oil

½ tsp. vanilla 

1 8 oz. package dried apples, chopped


In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients, wait to add dried apples. Stir in honey, oil, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Divide into 2 equal parts and bake each part in a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan and bake at 350 °F for 2025 minutes until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in ½ the apples into each part. Cool. Stir with a fork until crumbly. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Yield: 10 cups.


Raisins, chopped dates, or other dried fruit may be substituted for apples.


Honey Blueberry Spread

½ c. fresh or thawed frozen blueberries

¼ c. Cox Honeyland's Honey, divided

Once cooled, blend in remaining honey. Beat in butter. Serve at room temperature. Store in the refrigerator, tightly covered. Yield: 2/3 cup

4 Tbsp. butter

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. Salt

1 c. raw or roasted peanuts (optional)


Pop the corn and place in an oven safe container. Place the container in a warm oven so the corn and pan will be warm when syrup is added.

Cook to a hard crack stage and add butter before taking from the heat. Add baking soda and vanilla. Pour syrup over corn, mixing well. Pour on a flat surface to harden.
