Who doesn't like salty and sweet!?

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This snack has it all - it's sweet, salty and full of crunch and gooeyness. We loved all the textures combined. The mini-marshmallows are an unexpected surprise mixed with all the crunch ingredients. It would be fun to set this out at a Halloween party or package in small bags as a favor.
