    A very quick & easy snack mix for the kids! I always like to add some form of chocolate to snack mixes, so I added some mini M&M's. The kids really enjoyed this & we make it for most family trips!

    This isn't a recipe. It's a "let's find some snacks that are healthy and mix them together to make one be batch of snack." The flavors don't go together at all. I'm tempted to sort it all back out into individual snacks.

    it is an easy snack mix to throw together,but it really didn't taste all that great. i mean if we're going to waste calories and carbs on a salty snack, don't you want it to taste good!

    I make lots of your recipes for our camping trips in our motor home. This one was great for our evening card party!
