Spicy Snack Mix is a light, crispy concoction that's a favorite of Betty Sitzman and her family in Wray, Colorado. The nuts help to satisfy the "hungries", and you can make the mix more or less spicy to suit your taste.
"This snack mix is perfect for a late-night treat or a pick-me up anytime of the day," shares Mary Obeilin, a reader from Selingsgrove, Pennsylvania. "I sometimes take a batch to work, and it's always eaten up quickly. It's a slightly different cereal snack because of the chocolate and peanut butter.
The secret to this munchable mixture, which will quickly disappear when you serve it to family and friends, is in the flavor—it's so inviting that folks can't stop with just one bite! Writes Kitty Henderson from Hazelhurst, Georgia, "I also make my nutty snack to give as holiday gifts. Everyone loves it."—Kitty Henderson, Hazlehurst, Georgia
