Sesame Crunch Trail Mix
A DIY trail mix is so much more delicious than what you can buy at the store. In this tasty sweet-and-crunchy sesame situation, there are three types of salted nuts—cashews, peanuts, and pistachios—plus crispy rice cereal for a satisfying texture to the sesame crunch that takes on an almost brittle-like personality. Egg whites might seem like an unusual addition, but they’re the key to making the sesame-and-crispy rice cereal crunch be what it should be, crispy. Sesame seeds and golden raisins take the flavor profile up a notch from the standard trail mix. Cooking tip: keep an eye on the batch while baking—the sesame brittle can go from pale to dark golden brown quickly.
