Honey Chex Mix

I came up with this recipe as an option for Grace’s Kitchen lunch bags. Our neighborhood children really liked it. You can used whatever cereal or nuts you prefer. M&Ms would also be a tasty addition. The recipe that follows yield about 16 (1-cup) servings and is easily doubled. Enjoy!

Honey Trail Mix
6 cups corn chex
1 1/2 cups roasted salted almonds
1 1/2 cups cocktail peanuts
1 (6-oz.) package dried cranberries
3 cups pretzels
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 to 3/4 cup honey

1. Combine corn chex and next 5 ingredients. Stir together honey and butter until combined. Toss honey mixture with corn chex mixture. Spread on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
2. Bake at 300° for 25 to 30 minutes. Stir mixture, and spread on wax paper to cool completely (about 2 hours).
Note: You may have to break it up the cereal mixture with your hands after it cools, but it isn't sticky, just glazed.
