Life Cereal Snack Mix

Pin It
Forget Chex mix. Forget potato chips. This will be your new favorite salty snack. I'm warning you now, this is one of those snacks that you might find yourself munching on handful after handful until suddenly you have a stomachache and you're no longer hungry for dinner. I may or may not be speaking from firsthand experience...

The plus is that this recipe makes a HUGE amount. Make a giant batch and share with all of your friends, who will beg you for the addictive recipe. This stuff can be made well in advance, just store in airtight ziploc bags.

When you want a salty snack mix, make this. When you're craving sweet, try this praline mix. Better yet, make both and alternate handfuls! :)
