Sweet and Salty Snack Mix

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lisa Lou Who

This is a little different than the other snack mixes listed. Chocolate does not agree with my kiddies so I can't include M&M's in any of my mixes :( I don't miss them with this yummy concoction though.

I love this stuff! My mom used to make it for my Girl Scout events and when I graduated and left the troop we had to pass the recipe along so they could continue to have it at events.
