Maple Glazed Snacks

This is a delicious snack for game day, Grey Cup is around the corner.
These treats can be enjoyed anytime. My bowl of snacks disappeared quickly. You can change up the cereals and the nuts for what you prefer or have in the house. Use almond or maple flavoring instead of vanilla for a different flavor.
Also a great gift idea from your kitchen, fill up festive little bags and hand them out to family, friends, co-workers, or anyone else you would like to bless.

  1. oh oh... I just bought my boxes of cereal to make my annual mix but now I'm torn... and the idea of salty and sweet it a weakness that I think will likely win out this year! I'll just add a whole bunch of peanuts for good measure! =)

  2. I can't wait to try these...I love these kind of snacks.

  3. Oh Yum! This mix and blend of flavours sounds fantastic. The mix I make every year is a savoury one and this sounds like a nice change!
