Microwave Nut Crunch

A delicious snack mix that's ready in a matter of minutes. SOunds great for an after school snack or a lunchbox treat!

1 cup pecan halves
1 cup whole almonds
1/2 cup walnut halves
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons whole milk (or fat-free half and half)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. If the nuts are not roasted, heat the oven to 350° F and spread the nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast them for about 8 to 10 minutes or until they just start to turn brown. 2. Stir together the sugar, cinnamon, salt, and milk in a medium-size microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes (for a 1,000-watt unit.) 3. Stir quickly (don't worry if the mixture looks as though it curdled a little), then microwave for 1 minute more or until the mixture is noticeably thick. 4. Stir in the vanilla extract and then stir in the nuts, turning them to coat. Spoon the nuts onto waxed paper, separate them with a fork, and let them cool for 10 minutes. 5. Place 1/4-cup servings in little plastic containers or ziplock bags. Makes 10 servings.
