RECIPE: Crunchy Ramen Snack Mix

While on the lookout for new snack ideas, I came across this recipe from Martha Stewart. I liked the idea of using the crunchy ramen noodles (reminded me of all the ramen I ate as a kid). Baked in the oven with nuts, corn flakes and sesame sticks, this snack mix turned out addicting and delicious. Next time I make it, I want to spice it up with wasabi peas.
