Nicole M. Presley WARNING: Once you try this snack, it will become your obsession and you won't be able to stop eating it! These honey nut cereal peanut clusters have been affectionately known in my household as "the best trail mix on Earth." I often make a batch once a month or so on a Sunday evening so the boys and I can munch on them throughout the following week. Another great reason to love this recipe is that it's a good snack for active moms on the go like me. Between work and family life, I need a tiny meal to get me through the day! MORE + LESS -
