Spiced cashews contrast with sweet dried cranberries in this quick combo made on the stove top. Feel free to swap walnuts, almonds and/or pecans for the cashews. —Louise Gilbert, Quesnel, British Columbia
"No one can resist the combination of chocolate and peanut butter in these sweet snacks! They really cure any urge for crunchy foods, too," confirms Laurie Mounce from Houston, Texas. "Plus, they offer fiber and protein."
From Waldo, Wisconsin, Lori Genske writes, "I grew tired of my family picking through a snack mix for their favorite items and leaving the rest. So I experimented using only their favorites and came up with this recipe. Now there's never any left!"
If your tastes run to sweet and spicy, you'll love Mary Lou Moon's zesty pretzels with a twist. The coating is so yummy, you won't need a fattening dip to enjoy them! "They're a great snack for munching, without feeling a bit guilty," writes the Beaverton, Oregon reader.
A new sweet/salty twist on an old party favorite, this mix includes pistachios, craisins and a mild curry flavor that make it irresistible! It's also a great gift from the kitchen to keep on hand during the holidays.

Popcorn is good just about any way, but spicing it up makes it all the more special. I love this recipe because so many people enjoy it. Pile it in bowls for parties or spoon individual portions into sealed bags for take-along treats. —Leah Steenberg, Circle Pines, Minnesota
