Vacations are a nice break from everyday routine . Everyone has a different perspective where these vacations are concerned. With this jet age everyone wants to save travel time and choose flights as their travel mode, but some how road trips are lot of fun. One can stop anywhere on the way to enjoy the natural beauty , carry and eat loads of goodies, basically a munching trip!!
Carrying lots of food packets is a option which most people follow, but of course home made goodies are always preferred. This time for Diwali pooja I made ladoos. The recipe was given by Priya , she used jaggery but I chose powdered sugar. This is the first time I have made ladoos , even though I am a great fan of any kind of ladoos, I don't make them...eventually I find myself indulging into finishing them. These ladoos were a total hit and my little grand children loved them.for once my daughter asked me to pack these as they are travelling to North. The ladoos are healthy and the children need not gorge on those junky chips. These ladoos are my Day 1 post under the theme Car Snacks for BM 46.

I garnished these with tiny fondant flowers, but you can use any nuts.
