This is a very flexible recipe. The only part of this recipe that you need is really the "juice". The snack mix is really up to you. Don't like pretzels? Leave 'em out. Want a different kind of nut? No problem. Sesame sticks and Melba toasts are also wonderful. Take the basic mix and be creative, just adjust the amount of "juice" to fit the amount of snack mix you end up with! My family makes this by the barrel full during the holidays!
