A savory and sweet mix that is hard to beat.

Sweet & Savory Snack Mix
Holly Clegg

1. Preheat oven 250°F. Line baking pan with foil.

2. In small bowl, whisk together sesame oil, honey, soy sauce and garlic powder.

3. On prepared pan, combine cereal squares, pretzels, and peanuts. Add oil mixture and toss with cereal mixture. Bake 25 minutes, stirring once.

4. Turn off oven and remain in oven 1 hour to continue crisping. Cool completely and toss with chocolate candies. Store in an airtight container.

TERRIFIC TIP: Use seasonal chocolate candies for the different holidays. Leave out the chocolate candies and add dried cranberries, if desired. Or, the mixture can be made without either.

Nutrition Nugget: Fortified cereals actually provide a host of nutrients including calcium, iron, fiber, folic acid and vitamins C, B and A.
