Got a moment to spare in the morning for a savory snack throughout the day? Or even better, prep these babies the night before and bake them in the morning while you shower or lie in bed for “five more minutes” before school or work. Nothing complicated here.

Store them in a ziplock, your pocket, or under your pillow and pop them in your mouth. Pop ’em in the car, at your desk, on the back of a whale, in a hot air balloon, or at a corgi beach day. It really doesn’t matter where because it’s portable, duh.

Basically, have a good time snacking on paradise wrapped in heaven filled with life whenever and wherever you want.
