Caramelized Crispy Snack Mix

Recipe by dojemi

I found this recipe on the inside of a butter carton. It's difficult to determine the serving size for a snack but the recipe original recipe says 40 (1/2 cup) servings.

This is a good snack mix, not quite as awesome and addictive as Muddy Buddies (or Puppy Chow or whatever you choose to call it) hence the 4 stars. A nice choice for a party or youth group snacks. I also throw in some raisins if I have them on hand. I have also made a "sweet and salty" version where I added nuts and goldfish. That was good too, but not as popular as the standard version.
