This snack mix recipe featuring crunchy cereals, sweet raisins, and spices is sure to be a family favorite during the holidays. It also doubles as a healthy snack for Santa when he's delivering presents.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 250°. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.

Step 2

Cook honey and butter together in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted and mixture is blended and smooth (about 5 minutes).

Step 3

Pour honey mixture over cereal mixture, stirring to coat. Spread in a single layer on a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.

Step 4

Bake at 250° for 55 minutes, stirring once every 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in raisins, and bake 5 more minutes. Spread immediately on wax paper; cool 20 minutes. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.

Step 5

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Quaker Oat Bran for toasted oat bran cereal and Kashi GOLEAN Crunch for multigrain cluster cereal.

My family loves this snack mix. i'm making a second batch today! I wish I knew exactly which Brand cereals you used. One thing - the chopped pecans were too small, my husband asked me to use halves in this batch.
