Honey Graham Snack Mix

I should probably warn you, I could eat all 14 cups of this stuff by myself.  It’s addicting.  You might want to plan on giving some away.  Your friends and neighbors will love you for it.  I like to use peanuts or slivered almonds in the recipe, but any type of nuts (or no nuts at all) will work.  And if you don’t like coconut, you can leave that out too. Store brand Chex cereals work just fine in this recipe, but the store brand Golden Grahams tend to go soggy. The name brand version stays nice and crunchy, so I don’t usually skimp there. The candy coating on this snack mix is meant to be a little chewy, so don’t overcook it or it will harden into one solid mass.  I would probably still eat it all though.

    I made this for a teacher gift for Christmas one year and three years later when another child had the same teachers, the first thing they told me at back to school night was that they were excited to have my kid and hoped I would have the same Christmas gift for them. This recipe is memorable!
