I love this mix, and so do most of my recipients :) I make a huge batch, and pack them up in cello bags, tied with a ribbon. It keeps really well (at least a couple of weeks..?)

1 4 lb. bag of pretzels
4 cups of almonds (1/2 of a 2 lb. bag)
4 cups of pecans (1/2 of a 2 lb. bag)
4 cups (1/2 of a 30 oz. bag) dried cranberries
8 large egg whites (about 1 cup)
4 cups white sugar
6 tablespoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Spread pecans and almonds evenly on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until nuts are slightly darker in color. Cool completely on pan.

Reduce oven temperature to 225.

In two large foil pans, combine the pecans, almonds, pretzels, and cranberries.

In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Pour over pretzel mixture; toss until well coated. In another small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over pretzel mixture; toss until well coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan. Store in an airtight container.
