Yum! And oh so easy!!!
I took heed of the message about how sticky this mix can get, so I solved this problem by putting on a pair of thin cooking gloves and it was soooo easy. I was able to put my hands into the bowl of ingredients (while wearing the gloves) and really mix it well together. And oh by the way, do they ever taste great. They are not going to last very long, especially since I made mine bigger than a golf ball. Next time I'm probably going to double the mix!
The only alterations I made to the original recipe was omitting the raisins and increasing the cranberries to 1 cup. The nuts I used were walnuts, (awesome brain food), and I used crunchy peanut butter which gave me added peanuts to the mix. I omitted the salt, and only used 1 tsp of organic vanilla extract.
