Boo Mix (Halloween Snack Mix)

The boys are in Cub Scouts.  We had their annual Halloween party last Thursday.  Someone made this boo mix for some of the snacks being served.  Oh, my goodness, I could not stop eating it.  I even took one of the last two cups of it and ate some on the way home and the remainder the next day.   I did not let any be wasted.

Today I found the recipe, so I made some snack mix for the boys and my lunches.  Both boys tried some after I made it.  They loved it, so each has 5 snack-size bags of the mix for their lunches.  Then our friend stopped by the house and tried it.  He also gave it a thumbs-up!
