This savory snack shapes up in mere minutes...and disappears just as quickly, assures Sharon Skildum of Maple Grove, Minnesota. "My family agrees that you can't eat just one," she grins. "That's okay, thoughmaking more is just a matter of coating purchased pretzels with spices. Our children are always happy to help!"Sharon Skildum, Maple Grove, Minnesota
The pleasant sweetness of this crisp, munchable mixture will surprise you. "I've taken it to my children's schools for parties or as a special treat," writes Donna Scully of Newark, Delaware. "I've also packaged it in bow-topped tins for special gifts."
With nuts, raisins, M&M's and coconut, this is a super snack. In small gingham bags, it made wonderful party favors for each guest at the cowboy-theme wedding shower I hosted. This mix is a tasty treat anytime.

This snack mix has it all! The Cheerios, nuts, chips and M&M's make it sweet, and the noodles and nuts add just the right crunch. Arrange it in layers in a large glass jar and give it as a hostess gift. —Lori Daniels, Beverly, West Virginia
"This is one of my favorite snacks to take to large get-togethers," writes Grace Yaskovic from her Branchville, New Jersey home. Cinnamon, brown sugar and butter create a lip-smacking coating for cereal and a variety of nuts in this change-of-pace party mix. One handful simply isn't enough!
