This recipe features some of my favorite Fall flavors, including cinnamon, honey nut, and of course, pumpkin spice! Just mix the pumpkin pie spice with brown sugar and sprinkle it over your prepared snack mix. Toss it all to combine, then pop it in the oven for a few minutes. During baking, the butter and syrup cause everything to brown up perfectly, giving you a sweet Fall snack bursting with flavor in every bite!
