Caramelized Snack Mix
It seems I am always in need of Snack Mix’s in my home. From family to guests stopping in I love being able to pull out a snack mix and sit down to catch up. One snack mix I just adore is Caramelized Snack Mix. Making a big batch of this ensures I am always ready for company.
I love Chex. It’s the one ingredient I seem to always have a box or two of. Chex is so versatile for sweet or savory and anything in between.
