Sweet and salty party mix

Make it a movie night gift basket, add this party mix, a movie, some candies, maybe nuts and cute napkins you could also add their favorite beverage. This gift takes a little more time to bake up but it is worth it. Throw the gift basket together and mark another name off your list. I would suggest making a couple of batches because it is really hard to stay out of. Need gluten free, use rice or corn Chex in place of wheat.

2 quarts popped popcorn

3 cups wheat or rice Chex

1 11 oz can salted mixed nuts

½ cup butter, cubed

½ cup honey

In a large bowl mix the popcorn, Chex, and nuts. Heat butter and honey until butter is melted, pour over the other ingredients. Spread out the mixture on 2 ungreased cookie sheets, careful to have ingredients in a single layer, bake for 15-20 minutes in a 350 degree oven  or until the popcorn is golden brown, stir mixture every five minutes of baking time. While everything is cooling stir occasionally to keep large clumps from forming.  This makes a great gift, just place in a tin, or other sealable container.
