At first this recipe started out with small microwave fire followed by a painful but easily treated first/second degree burn. However with a little tweaking (addition of chocolate covered peanuts cinnamon chex) the final result is quite good. My only advice would be to check the wattage of your microwave evidentally mine is set on nuclear. Read More

Very Tasty!!! I added dried cranberries with apples instead of just apples (found next to the raisins at the grocery store). Also wait longer then 5 mintues to put the yogart covered raisins...otherwise they will start melting. I did wait about 15 and some still did melt. Read More

This was good but I microwaved it longer than I was supposed to after adding the apples because they didn't appear brown as the directions said they should. Now some of the apples are hard or too chewy so next time I will be sure to only microwave it for the time it states. Read More

Excellent sweet snack mix...really nice blend of flavors. I halved this recipe and fudged on the measurements and it still came out perfect! Even my picky husband likes it. I substituted cinnamon Chex added dark chocolate-covered raisins and about 1 cup of apple-cinnamon Cheerios to the mix and it is wonderful. I also found some cinnamon-flavored apple chips to use in place of dried apples- these have a little crisper texture than plain dried apples and great flavor. Great autumn snack mix! Read More

I love this recipe but I like to make a few changes. First instead of almonds I use dry honey roasted peanuts second I use regular raisins instead of yogurt covered raisins. I love the changes gives it that added touch. Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a really big hit. I made 2 batches separately and doubled the cinnamon in the second batch because the first was not cinnamony enough for me. I mixed them together and it turned out great. I went to Whole Foods for the dried apples (in the bulk aisle) and then saw they had them at Wal-Mart! My dad has requested another batch for Christmas and asked that I add cashews as well. This was very easy to make and tastes great! It's not super sweet but it is very addictive! I highly recommend it! Read More

Awesome. Perfect for Turkey Day or any fall event. Very different from traditional chex. Couldn't find just dried apples. So I used a dried fruit ix that had apples AND Cranberries. Cranberries are a must in this. Read More

Everyone loved this. I used homemade apple chips in place of dried apples. I sliced granny smith apples with a mandoline put them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkled with a pinch of cinnamon sugar. Baked at 200 for 2 hrs. They keep their color and taste wonderful in this mix. I cooked it all on the stove stirring constantly Read More
