"I had prepared this recipe when it was featured in Taste of Home and I'd adjusted it by adding 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper and I added 2 cups mixed nuts since that was what I'd had on hand! I've also used a large roasting pan instead of a 15x10x1" pan. It's easier for me to stir the snack mix and the pan is deeper in that the mix doesn't fly out of the pan & into the oven! I'd made this snack mix for our coffee time on Sundays! This is a really great recipe, Betty Jean Jordan. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Dawn E. Lowenstein"
