Reviews for Rosemary-Parmesan Snack Mix
"This tastes yummy! I have given it away to teachers, friends, family as Christmas gifts and have gotten rave reviews. I'm always asked to share the recipe. I have switched up the cereal and used Crispix instead as well as left out the almonds...it tastes great no matter which way you switch it up!"
