A fun twist on a snack mix that will evoke surprise from whoever you give it to!


A sauce of honey, butter, and brown sugar coats crunchy toasted ramen, almonds, white chocolate chips, and dried cranberries to make my niece’s favorite snack mix. This also makes fun gifts for your friends!

 Is it healthy? As healthy as crunch and munch or other snack mixes. Is it good? Oh my, yes.

I add a wee bit of salt but you could easily double it if you wanted a sweet and salty treat rather than just sweet. Honey, butter, brown sugar snack mix. Merciful but this stuff is good – And an awfully fun gift.


You’ll need: three packages of ramen*, Dried Cranberries, Sliced Almonds, Brown Sugar, Butter, Vanilla, Honey, Cinnamon, Kosher Salt, and White Chocolate Chips (optional).

*For the Ramen, be sure and get the square packages because they don’t have the seasoning incorporated into them but in a packet inside the package instead. Based on this, you can get any flavor you want because we’re not going to use the flavor packet anyway.

1. To start with place butter, honey, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a microwave safe bowl or sauce pot and heat until just warm enough to dissolve the brown sugar. Stir well.

2. Break up uncooked Ramen into bite sized pieces. Throw away the seasoning packets or save for another use.

3. Add Ramen, almonds, and dried cranberries to sauce and stir really well to coat.

4. Pour onto a lightly greased rimmed baking sheet and place in a 325 oven for thirty minutes, stirring ramen well every ten minutes.

When you remove it from the oven stir it a final time and allow it to rest until fully cool.  Then, break it up and Stir in white chocolate chips. Store in an airtight container for up to one week, or freeze in zipper seal bags for up to six months for gift giving.


Enjoy your delicious snack mix!

I started out making this just to see the expression on people’s faces when they heard what it was – but now I have to keep making it because of demand!

  1. I’m really excited to try this, Christy! What do you think about doing a white chocolate drizzle when everything cools just so all the white chocolate is incorporated into every bite?

  2. This sounds so good and easy to make. I will be trying for gifts that I exchange with my family at Christmas. I use the flavour packet s on pasta and seasoning in soups and casseroles so there would be not waste. Just as an after thought couldn’t use any dried fruit instead of cranberries such a raisins, apricots or blueberries?
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. You mentioned adding salt you make this a sweet and salty snack, how much salt do you suggest adding? So excited to make this exactly as you’ve printed and maybe a salty version too!!

    1. When I want it to be salty I double the salt. You can taste a wee bit of salt as it is (although given time someone will inevitably come along and swear they nearly died from being instantly dehydrated by the whopping 1/2 teaspoon of salt because…the internet) but doubling it adds a nice little salty kick 🙂
