Peanutty Butterscotch Snack Mix

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by teachypeach

This snack mix recipe was modified from one i read on the back of a cereal box to suit my anti-raisin tastes. You can substitute raisins for the M&M's...but i think that's unnatural. it's kind of like a butterscotchy puppy chow.

Very good! I substituted a combo of white and peanut butter chips for the butterscotch and it turned out great. I also sifted it through my colander before putting it into a storage container- just to shake off some of the excess sugar.
