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.
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 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!
You got a winning recipe! A "numero uno" in my book...I can't wait to prepare it again.
One question...or two for you. How do you package
it for gift giving and how long does it last?
Provided that my kids do not find it first...if
you have the answer please share it! Thanks a bunch for your Trish Caramel Snack Mix.
