People ask me when I am going to make more of this sweet snack mix that is so simple. Kids love it. White chocolate, (any plain) cereals, nuts, pretzels, dried cranberries, and spices. You can use whatever dried fruit or plain cereals you prefer.

This recipe is very versatile. You can make many changes and it still turns out great. I made it for a morning Bible study group so I didn't want it too sweet at breakfast time. I doubled the recipe only used Chex and Honey Nut O's for cereal only used peanuts for nuts used half of the brown sugar half the white chocolate chips half the nutmeg and ginger and increased the cinnamon by 50%. My husband and I both thinks it's great. He said it's addicting so I better seal it so I have enough to take Monday. Read More
