Very easy to make. Besides making it for friends and family it is also a big hit at the bake sales too. The requests for me to make it are overwhelming.

I just made this snack mix for a bake sale. The kids love it. The M&Ms add color, but they aren't even necessary.

I have brought this snack to parties and office potlucks. Everyone has asked for the recipe wherever I bring it. I just need to cut the oven time to 7-10 minutes since my oven temperature usually runs high.
