Peanut Butter Snack Mix

This stuff is irresistible!

4 T honey
2 T Smart Balance
4 T peanut butter
Melt all together in the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove

In a large bowl combine:
5 c. assorted Chex cereals
2 c. mini pretzels
1 c. golden raisins
1 c. honey-dry roasted peanuts
1 c. mixed toasted almonds & pecans

Pour the melted ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until coated.
Spread on a cookie sheet and bake 1 1/2 hours at 175 degrees (or until crispy and not sticky) Makes 10 cups.

Approximately 270 calories per 3/4 cup serving as the recipe is given but you can cut out the Smart Balance, reducing the fat, and it seems to work just as well. I also include more toasted almonds and pecans than it calls for.
