Honey-Cardamom Crunch

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by ClareVH

The recipe is from America's Best Recipes 2003, and is a variation of Chex Mix. The first time I made it, I used packaged ground cardamom. I have since scored a bag of green cardamom pods at my local Middle Eastern market, so next time I will grind my own.

Yum, Yum!! What a wonderful snack. I had never used cardamom until I bought it for a chai tea mix a couple of weeks ago. It smelled so good in this recipe and the taste is superb. I am sure this will not last long around our house.
