My 17 year old Grandaughter needed a snack for school. I had been wanting to make some snackmix for fall. So I put this togather with what I had on hand, and parts of 2 different reciepes. The next day I recieve a call from the High School.With this Grandaughter, a call from school is never good. The lady on the line said " Your Grandaughter brought some snack mix to school and we love it, we want the reciepe!" It is good!
