These party pleasers are also mouth-watering tossed over a warm salad, casserole, or a roasted vegetable dish.

I recently took this mix to a party and it was a big hit. I cut the recipe in half and left off the raw sugar, then I mixed in 1 cup of dried cranberries and 1 cup of M&M's. I lined a baking sheet with non-stick foil and used it to bake the mix and let it cool. People told me it was the best "gourmet gorp" they had ever eaten.
