Praline Pecan Crunch Snack Mix

Praline Pecan Crunch Snack Mix
Transform oatmeal cereal squares into a bakery style pecan crunch, just like the ones you find in the little ribbon tied bags with a handwritten label. Instead of coating whole pecans with praline, chop the pecans into tiny pieces and add them to the mix first. Then pour a sweet velvety coat over the oatmeal squares. Cereal was never so glamorous.
