Great snack mix! I also found it a bit sweet the first time I made it, so the next time I used salted nuts (pecans, cashews and almonds) and also added some pretzels. It was a big hit with my family!
Since everyone else who has tried this seems to love it, I obviously did something wrong. Maybe I baked it too long because it was hard like candy. Or maybe we just prefer the original snack mix. Sorry!
Absolutely addictive! Made this for our company party and had several requests for the recipe. This recipe is change friendly as far as type of nuts and that sort of thing. BE SURE to stir every few minutes after you take it out of the oven to keep it from sticking in one big glob.
Great! Hard to stop eating once you start. Everyone that I gave this to has requested the recipe.
I lined the pan with foil and sprayed with Pam before mixing everything. Made clean-up VERY easy.
This was sooo good. It was hard to stop eating it once I started. With the pecans in this, it sort of tasted like pecan pie...which I love. I used cinnamon crispix cereal rather than the crispies and added some old fashioned oats. I used all peanuts rather than almonds and added a splash of vanilla extrat. I would have loved to have made this exactly as the recipe is written, but didn't have all of the right ingredients. This is definitely a re-do. Thanks Trish.
This caramel snack mix was excellent! I only wish I had made twice as much of the coating mixture to completely cover all the cereal mixture!
Fabulous and simply - Trish, I have used your recipe at least 20 times and it is always a BIG hit. I add dried cranberries right after taking it out of the oven; the tart/softness is a great contrast to the crunchy/crispness. (Great road trip food) Thank You, Thank You!
This is very good. I don't see how some can say that it is too sweet. I did add extras though, maybe that's why it doesn't seem too sweet. I made 1 and 1/2 batches of the caramel mixture and added 1tbsp vanilla extract to it. I used 1c almonds, 1c cashews, 1/2c chopped pecans, about 12oz corn Chex, and 8oz of tiny twist pretzels. It tastes perfect, not to sweet or not sweet enough. I bought the biggest disposable roasting pan I could find. I think this is a must. It makes it pretty easy to stir every 15 minutes while it's in the oven.
