This is a recipe I found in Cook's Country magazine. If you like a little spice and something different - this is it! I make it every year and give it as Christmas gifts from my kitchen.

WooHoo!! Just love different snack mixes, and this one is tasty, too! :) I added about 1/2 c. more of the wasabi peas and the peanuts, for good measure. I also added the dry spices to the melted butter/soy sauce combo, before pouring over all. I'm so glad I tried this party mix, and have tucked it away, so I can make it again! Thanks for sharing, K in LA.
