A favorite holiday staple at our place is this tasty snack mix…which we call ‘nuts ‘n bolts’, but which is known by many other names. Here’s a somewhat zippy version…feel free to use the cereals of your choice. We love adding the Old Dutch popcorn twists…but if you aren’t Canadian, you won’t be finding those on your grocery store shelves.
