This super-easy recipe is from my friend and co-worker Gwendolyn. I am in love with it because it combines my lust for things like cereal and sweetened condensed milk. What Gwendolyn loves about this recipe is that you can have the ingredients on hand at any time in case surprise guests appear at your doorstep. (Which I might start doing now that she's told me that she will always have said ingredients on hand.)
Gwendolyn's Snack Mix
8 c. Crispix cereal
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. cashews
1 c. pretzel nuggets
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Put cereal, cashews and pretzels in a large bowl. Combine sweetened condensed milk and vanilla in a smaller bowl. Drizzle over cereal mixture and gently stir to coat. Transfer to 2 lightly greased cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes. Immediately remove to waxed paper and spread out to dry. Store in an airtight container.
