    I made this sweet and salty snack mix to use up some bits and pieces in my pantry. I had honey nut cheerios and no honeycomb cereal so for that amount I added mixed nuts and some craisins. It is delicious! I will make it again !

    this is perfect as is, but also forgiving of a few tweaks- I make this often, and usually double the batch.

    I Just made this by cutting the recipe in half because it was way to much for my family. It turned out awful. It is way to sweet. I am very disappointed. Looks like I'll be feeding the birds.

    I just didn't care for this. Too sweet I think for me. I took it on a summer vacation hoping everyone would love it, but I ended up being stuck with most of it when I got home.

    I have made this for weddings, receptions, Christmas gifts- it's a winner. Sometimes I add about 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper to ad a mild zip. Sometimes I add in craisens and crispy baked peas for crunch and Christmas colors. I have been asked for this recipe each time I serve it

    This is such a beautiful treat for a party, it gets made often in our house. We tend to triple the recipe, as it has a habit of vanishing way too fast. It's a keeper, for sure.
