Cranberry Walnut Party Mix

This is a fun snack to set out at a party or to send off with your husband to work.  It is very easy to make:  everything is done in the microwave!  If you are going gluten free, make sure you buy gluten free honey nut and rice chex.  Happy snacking!

Be careful:  this snack is so good it's hard to stop eating it!
2c walnuts
4-5c rice chex
4-5c honey nut chex
1 stick butter
1/3c packed brown sugar
1/3c honey
1tsp sea salt
2c dried cranberries

1. Heat butter, sugar , honey and salt in a bowl in the microwave for 90 seconds (or until boils).  Stir to dissolve sugars.  Toss in cereal and walnuts until evenly coated.
2. Place back in the microwave for 4 minutes, stopping every minute and stirring well to ensure it doesn't burn.
3. Add in the cranberries.  Continue to cook 3 more minutes, again, stirring after every minute.
4. Spread on parchment or non-stick foil until cool.  Store in an airtight container.
