World's Best Snack MixThis recipe is everything you want in a snack mix.  Sweet and salty.  Crunchy.  Different taste in every bite.  Addicting!!

The World’s Best Snack Mix is a new recipe for me, and where I’m usually “making the past taste good again” here on Swanky Kitchen, this snack mix is so good, I had to share it with you NOW!

I found the recipe in a school cookbook.   My daughters went to this school, and now my grandchildren do.  I suspect the World’s Best Snack Mix is a long-time family favorite for the mom who submitted it.  Gotta tell you, it’s now a family favorite for us, too.

Warning:  makes a bunch!
