This is the ultimate sweet and salty snack. It is really difficult to stop eating it and barely lasts a few days in my home. I must admit, it is a bit of a chore to make, with the slicing and roasting of the nuts, but the delicious outcome makes it all worthid.
I don’t make this mix often, and usually save this treat for a special occasion or function. It is a definite crowd pleaser, as both sweet and savoury eaters find their favourites in this delightful munch.
You can easily remove, add or substitute any of the ingredients for your favourites and make your own millionaires mix. I must warn you that this recipe yields a large amount of the mix, though if the occasion, it is an ideal gifting option to family and friends.
Hope you enjoy this crunchy, chewy, salty, nutty, sourish, soft, toasty, and utterly addictive snack as much as I do.
