These definitely have the potential of being 5 stars. However, takes a minimum of 30+ minutes in the oven to make them crunchy. Next time will put the oven at 200-250 like for Party Mix, stirring every 15 minutes and prbably bake for an hour. They desperately need salt.

I thought these were very good. As a snack, I find that the texture is too soft, and think that they probably need to be roasted for 30-45 minutes....I'm not sure that's the right time, but 15 minutes isn't nearly enough.
