This is delicious and so easy to make! I used pretzel knots instead of sticks because I prefer those, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I made it for a church fellowship and it was a big hit! Love the sweet and salty combination-a fun change of pace from typical more savory snack mix.

SO TASTY! Super easy to make and cheap! I sprinkle more brown sugar on the mix when I put each part in the pan before going in the oven, not making it better in cals for you but definitely better tasting!!

I substitute Life cereal, and use butter-flavored round pretzels. Yummy.
