Maple Glazed Snack Mix
Maple Glazed Snack Mix is tasty delicious, salty sweet with a hint of maple. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and salty.

A mixture of maple syrup, butter and vanilla extract is combined and then drizzled over the pretzels, cereals and nuts and baked into a delicious snack.
When making this recipe or any recipe that calls for using maple syrup always, always use the real thing. Maple flavored syrup and commercial pancake syrup doesn’t even contain any maple syrup. Most contain only corn syrup with the added flavoring of maple. 100 % real maple syrup is made with maple syrup that is tapped from maple trees and has the maple taste you want. Another clue that is the real deal, maple syrup isn’t thick.
Here is just one of our favorite places to purchase maple syrup in Wisconsin. We prefer to purchase only Wisconsin made maple syrup because there are so many locally owned and operated maple syrup “sugar shacks” here in Wisconsin that its difficult not to purchase syrup here. Take a drive down any back road highway and you’ll see a sign that says, “Maple Syrup Sold Here” sign. Bear Paw Maple Syrup
