Kids' Party Mix

My kids will choose something sweet every time it's an option for snacking.  Giving them a snack that gets most of its sweet flavor from maple syrup makes me feel better about this choice.  It's great to give for party favors, for an after school snack, and to share with friends.

    Kids' Party Mix

    2 c. bite sized pretzels

    2 c. Kashi Heart-to-Heart Honey Toasted Oat cereal
    2 c. Crispix or Chex
    2 c. Goldfish crackers

    ¼ cup maple syrup

    2 tablespoons butter

    1 c. dried cranberries or raisins

    1/2 c. chocolate chips
    1/2 c. M&M's

    1.     Preheat oven to 300°F.

    2.     In a large bowl, combine pretzels, goldfish, & cereal.

    3.     In a sauce pan, bring maple syrup and butter to boil.

    4.     Pour over cereal mixture and combine thoroughly.

    5.     Pour in 9X 13 pan.

    6.     Bake 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through.

    7.     Let cool.

    8.     Stir in cranberries and candy.
    9.  Serve in individual bags or muffins cups.

    If nut allergies are not a concern, 1 c. of nuts may be added before baking.

    M&M's are not nut-free (even the plain ones).

    I was going to say the same thing about M&M's. I have a peanut allergy and cannot eat them due to peanut oil in th coating. You can get other candies that are similar that are nut free, but you have to search for them!
