This sweet, chewy snack mix is addictive. It has been a family favorite for years. When I'm craving something sweet, I always make this. You can add extras to make it your own, or just enjoy as is. You better make a double batch, because it goes quickly.

This is wonderful! I am making it for a weekend up north and doubled it. I think I should have even tripled it! Next time I make it I might try adding some cashews or peanuts, I think something salty in it would be really good too! Thanks for a great recipe! **After taking it upnorth, I noticed that the mixture stays together, it's not like you can grab a handful and go, so I think a light dusting of confectioners sugar would help that. Definately will be making again!
