I'm a sucker for cereal mixes. Except, none of them seem to have enough FLAVORING. I mean, you come across that nut that's soaked in garlic and butter and it's all "yum" and heaven, but that's maybe one in three bites. . . This recipe has flavor EVERY bite. I found it in a beautiful cookbook, Gifts from the Christmas Kitchen, put out by one of my favorite producers, Favorite Brand Name Recipes.

How to Make Cranberry-Orange Snack Mix

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 250*F. Spray a 13 x 9 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2Combine cereal squares, pretzels, and almonds in large bowl; set aside.
  • 3Melt butter in medium microwavable bowl on High for 45 to 60 seconds. Stir in orange juice concentrate, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg until blended. Pour over cereal mixture; stir well to coat. Place in prepared pan and spread to one layer.
  • 4Bake 50 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. THE OATMEAL SQUARES WILL SEEM LIKE THEY'RE NOT DONE, BUT THEY WILL CRISP UP AFTER THEY'RE OUT OF THE OVEN. Stir in cranberries. Let cool in pan on wire rack, leaving uncovered until mixture is crisp. Store in airtight container or resealable plastic food storage bag.
