This Caramel Honeycomb Snack Mix is a tasty snack that kids and adults will both love.
Honeycomb cereal has been a family favorite for years, so I was excited to have the chance to make a recipes using it. In fact Post Honeycomb cereal is turning 50 this year, and it is good both in the bowl for breakfast or used in a recipe.
I decided to use the cereal as part of a fun snack mix. I combined he Honeycombs with some broken pretzels, popcorn and cashews, and then poured Caramel sauce over the top.
The resulting snack mix was a nice combination of sweet and crunchy, and it was very addictive! I ate too much snack mix, but then luckily my kids found it and helped me by finishing it off.
