I made an account here just so I can comment on this recipe! I made this mix for my company's Valentine's Day potluck and it was such a hit it's been requested for the St. Patrick's Day Potluck. I guess I will be serving up a green-sprinkled batch! I definitely recommend this recipe. It tastes much better than "Puppy Chow". It's delicious!

This was a perfect snack to take to work on Valentine's Day. Received many great comments and requests for the recipe!! I cannot wait to add other "holiday" candies into the mix and enjoy this all year long.
