A nice change from salty snacks. This is a sweet and salty mix and is highly addictive. Hope you enjoy.

Been making this for years and no matter where I take it I get asked for the recipe. It makes a great gift. I use only Cashews for the nuts because my family does not care for all the nuts in mixed nuts. So any type of nuts work. I use extra Crispix or pretzels and it always turns out. Easy recipe for the new cook.

This is awesome. I made this for a family reunion and had none left to bring home. Thanks!

This is sooo tasty. Something I make often just for snacking. I like to decrease the recipe to half or 2/3rds because it makes SO much, and there's only 3 of us to eat it. I usually use a ratio that's more cereal, less pretzels. I also like to add craisins when it comes out of the oven.
I do find that the posted oven time is too long- my first batch tasted a bit burnt and I even took it out early.
