Directions for how to make our Fall Snack Mix
In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals and peanuts.
In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter and honey uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until mixture comes to a full boil and butter is melted.
Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 4 minutes, stirring every minute, until mixture is well coated and looks glazed.
Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Place in serving bowl; stir in candies. (I disregarded this part of the recipe and just stirred it all together in the large bowl. It's just easier that way!
Store in airtight container.
Method Note: Spray inside of measuring cup with cooking spray before measuring honey so the honey will slide right out after measuring.
Family/Kids: This snack is perfect for lunch boxes when packaged in small resealable food-storage plastic bags.
