Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I made this for a party, but admit I felt guilty because of the high calorie count. I'll play with it to see if I can change the ingredients to reduce the calories but keep the taste. Submitted by:

Seems to have a lot of fat. I like the idea of using Pam Butter flavor spray to knock the fat down a bit ! Submitted by:

Nice little snack. I added a lot more garlic, but played with some of the ingredients to cut down on the calories. Submitted by:

I didn't care for this. It was bland...I was looking for that sweet & salty combo and didn't get it. Submitted by:

the raisins contain 248 cal. for 1/2 cup, they are high in natural sugar content. I usually omit them, and I also try to get unsalted ingredients. I know the No name bite size shreddies has less salt. A great addion instead of the pretzel stick is stir fry noodles{dry kind]. Submitted by:

Not sure that I will make this, the calorie count is awfully high for just 1/4 cup serving. Sounds really good , though. I like everything that is included in it. Submitted by:

Use Pam spray instead of butter (a couple of sprays to make the garlic powder stick) and you can increase the serving size to half cup with only 4g of fat and around 250 calories. You may have to reduce the cooking time and watch it in the oven - without all that fat to cook in they crisp quicker. Submitted by:
