Sweet and Spicy Hazelnut Snack Mix

  • Yield: 7 Cups
  • Total Time: 55mins


Prepare for this snack mix to disappear fast! Crunchy hazelnuts, cereal, and pretzels are coated in a sweet and spicy mix of honey and habanero salt for an addictive treat to share. It pairs perfectly with crisp and refreshing Rogue Honey Kolsch.


  • 3 cups corn Chex cereal
  • 2 cups whole raw hazelnuts
  • 1 cup mini pretzel twists
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons Glory Bee raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons Jacobsen Salt Habanero Salt, or to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F and spray a large rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add the cereal, hazelnuts, and pretzels to a large bowl. Whisk together the melted butter, honey, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a small bowl. Pour over snack mix and stir gently to coat all ingredients.
  3. Transfer the mix to the prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully stir and spread back into a single layer. Continue to bake for a total of 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Watch it carefully the last 10 minutes to ensure it doesn’t brown too quickly.
  4. Sprinkle the hot snack mix with ½ teaspoon more of the salt. Once cool enough to taste, season with more salt if desired. Let cool for 5 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
