READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This is one of my favorite snack mixes. It's sweet rather than being spicy like most snack mixes. This is also great for gift baskets, hostess gifts, or to take to a party.

This snack mix is a tasty treat. I couldn't find the apple cheerios so just used plain then added couple teaspoons cinnamon to the caramel before mixing. I had to taste test it before we took it to a family gathering. It was really good maybe I could have used more cinnamon but I'm not complaining. Thanks for a great recipe!
