Caramelized Party Mix Recipe

This is an easy snack to make.  It is very addicting.  I love changing it up by adding cranberries, chocolate chips, raisins and all different nuts.  The flavor is rich and buttery. I created a label for it and put the mix in a nice plastic container with a lid to keep it fresh.

I bought these cute little burlap bags for favors.  They hold a nice amount for friends and family.
I bought them at Michaels. I glued on some fall leaves for the season. I also visited the dollar store and picked up some holiday cellophane treat bags.
