Disney's Christopher Robin hits theaters on August 3rd and promises to be one of the CUTEST movies of the year. I'll be attending the red carpet premier in Los Angeles next week and I'll have lots more fun behind-the-scenes awesomeness to share with you soon…so make sure you check back! You might not need a snack to get you in the mood for Disney's Christopher Robin but this Christopher Robin inspired “Hunny” Snack Mix is a fun way to celebrate all of our friends from the Hundred Acre Wood.
Disney's Christopher Robin inspired “Hunny” snack mix
4 cups honeycomb cereal
3 cups pretzels
3/4 cup whole almonds
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
2 tablespoons honey
Preheat oven to 325 and line a baking sheet with foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, add cereal, pretzels and almonds and mix well. Set aside,
In a small saucepan, add brown sugar, corn syrup and honey. Mix well and heat over medium low heat, stirring constantly until sugar is melted. Watch this doesn't boil too much, if it does, turn down the heat and continue to stir. Once all sugar is dissolved, pour over cereal and pretzel mix. Mix well to evenly coat.
Pour into prepared baking sheet and spread as evenly as possible.
Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool completely before breaking apart and enjoying snack mix. Pooh would approve, don't you think?

I think the almonds really make this awesome, plus, they add a bit of protein. If you're looking for a nut-free option, you could omit the almonds and add 3/4 cup of another ingredient…either extra pretzels or cereal or something else entirely, like raisins or sesame snack mix. My kids go to a nut free school so in order for us to make this a lunchbox option, we have to leave out the almonds.
