About

Last week I whipped up a batch of this delicious popcorn/cashew mix. It came from a recipe I have for a sweet cereal mix. I wanted to see how popcorn and cashews would taste instead of Chex and Crispix cereal. It is so good. I could not stop eating it. I literally ate it until my tummy hurt. But it was worth it. This will definitely be a new addition to our snack table this year (if I don't eat it all first!)
