I am hopelessly hooked on this recipe. When I first made it I figured it would be a second to the party mix I have made for eons.........was I ever surprised, this is my number one, favorite party mix. Do I need a party to make it ? No way, I make it just for me a lot. I usually double the recipe for a party.
