I recall preparing this snack mix when it was featured in Taste of Home. I'd used tortilla chips since I hadn't the corn chips available. I'd used 3 Tbsp. of pancake syrup in place of the honey at that time since I didn't have honey! I do recall using 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and 1 tsp. regular salt. Instead of chili powder, I recall using curry powder. I used a large roasting pan and stirred every 15 minutes. This way, the mix wouldn't stick to the pan!I thought that this mix was tasty! There are such a variety of snack mixes to try! delowenstein

We like snack mixes in my house, the whole family liked this one. Its a good combo of salty sweet. I didn't have oats or peanuts, so I left them out. I did add some oyster crackers, that I had on hand, they were ok, but I think mini ritz would be a lot better. I didn't have onion salt, so I subbed a tsp. of seasoned salt and a tsp. of onion powder. I also added a tsp. of garlic powder and tiny dash of cayenne powder. Because of the honey, this will burn easily so keep watch, I had to turn my oven temp down by 25 degrees.
