A slightly different & surprisingly yummy fruit & cereal snack mix. The first time I made this it looked very strange to me…keep going though!
2 C rice cereal squares
12 oz. can salted mixed nuts
2 egg whites
2 T orange juice
1 1/4 C sugar
1 t cinnamon
3 T butter
1 C dried cherries, chopped
Preheat oven to 275. Combine cereal & mixed nuts in large bowl.
In medium bowl, beat egg whites, orange juice, sugar and cinnamon until very soft peaks form. Pour over cereal mix and stir well. Melt butter in 15″x10″ jelly roll pan. Spread cereal mix in prepared pan over melted butter.
Bake 30 minutes, stirring twice during baking.
Stir in dried cherries and bake 10-15 minutes longer until lightly browned and crisp.
