Honey Glazed Snack Mix

Category: Snacks
Yield: 14 cups
Very addictive!
Makes a great teacher's gift.

1-12 oz box Crispix cereal
2 c miniature pretzels - use holiday shapes at Christmas
2 c mixed nuts
2/3 c butter - DO NOT use margarine
1/2 c honey
1 t cinnamon
2 c each assorted cookies and candies*

In a large mixing bowl, combine cereal, pretzels and nuts, set aside.
Melt butter in microwave.
Stir in honey & heat in microwave about 30 seconds. Stir in cinnamon.
Pour over cereal mixture and stir to coat evenly.
Spread on a large baking sheet (if you don't have a 1/2 sheet pan use 2 cookie sheets.)
Bake at 350ยบ for 15 minutes; stirring every 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool slightly.
Spread on waxed paper to cool completely.
After snack mix is completely cooled add additional desired ingredients.
* At Christmas I add Teddy Grahams cookies, holiday M&Ms, & dried cranberries.
At Thanksgiving I use candy corn & dried apple chips instead of cranberries.
