Santa's Snack Mix

Here's a recipe that's always a big hit at our house. 
It's a little sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy and yummy!

Santa's Snack Mix
2 cups small pretzels
1 cup pecan halves...or maybe a few more
1 cup, or 5 oz bag of dried cherries
1 egg white
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
Mix pretzels, pecan halves and cherries in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, beat egg white until foamy, and pour over the pretzel mixture; toss until well coated. 
In another small bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon and salt.
Sprinkle that over the pretzel mixture, tossing until well coated.
Spread evenly on a greased baking sheet...I use a jelly roll pan.
Bake one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. 
Let cool completely in the pan, and then store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Happy Snacking!
