Grandma Jensen's Nuts and Bolts

Festive Nut Bowl

White Chocolate Snack Mix

Here is a sweet snack mix that is delicious and colorful. Saltiness and sweetness is the best combination! Don't be afraid of trying other cereals, candy or nuts. Salted almonds, granola, or, butterscotch chips would be fine substitutes or additions.
