Snack it to me: Raisinably Delicious Snack Mix

Raisins are a point of contention in my family. Well, between me and my sister they are. She, so very wrongly, believes that raisins have no place in anything. Not oatmeal cookies. Not Irish soda bread.

I think she might be an alien. Or at the very least adopted. There is no way such a raisin hater can be related to me.

You see, I am on the right side of this disagreement. The side where those little boxes of raisins were never a disappointment when they showed up in my halloween bucket. And I think they make a great addition to any boring cereal – they can help keep me from feeling the need to add sugar to plain chex.

Don’t worry though. I added some chocolate in there for you non-raisin fanatics. Or for those of you who think they are equally important in life.
