Halloween Snack Mix

Photo: psfreeman

Family, friends and coworkers will enjoy "goblin" up this yummy snack mix. Great for Halloween parties and other fall gatherings. Honey-roasted peanuts can be used in place of the cashews pieces. Any bite-size crispy cereal will work, such as any unglazed Chex or Crispix. Recipe from Gooseberry Patch: October, 2012.
