We like to adventure out into the Selquirk mountain range surrounding our family cabin. These nuts never tasted better than when we enjoyed them together at the peak of an amazing hike. Almonds are extremely nutritious, and, when dressed up with a wonderful blend of spices, they go from ordinary to awesome! —Gina Myers, Spokane, Washington
I love curry, so I added it to a snack mix. It dissappeared quickly on a camping trip with friends. So yummy! For a less spicy flavor, use only 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

"A little bit of chocolate and cocoa goes a long way to give Rice Krispies treats a scrumptious new twist," says Gretchen Hickman of Galva, Illinois. "I especially like these bars because they are crisp, not sticky. They disappear in a flash whenever I serve them."

Folks can't get enough of this irresistible snack mix. A slightly sweet vanilla coating is the perfect match for the blend of mini pretzels, crispy cereal and salted nuts. It's a real crowd-pleaser.
