Mountain Mambo Allergy-Friendly Crunch Snack


This allergy-friendly crunch snack comes from the Enjoy Life Foods test kitchen. Using their products in it is the best way to keep the recipe truly “free from,” but you can use any crispy rice cereal for the cereal, your favorite trail mix, and whatever brand of chocolate chips suits your tastes. But, I have tried the chocolate chips from Enjoy Life and I highly recommend them! This is a very flexible recipe – feel free to play around with the ingredients.
