Snack mix is the perfect addition to any holiday. They are perfect for caroling around the neighborhood, holiday parties and family get togethers. Growing up we use to experiment with traditional Chex Mix recipes. We would add our own twist making it appropriate for the crowd (spicy for adults, sweet for children, etc). I have continued the tradition with my children, surprising them with different variations each time I make it! (Little do they know it is dependent on what is in the house! lol).
This year, I have been on a peanut butter kick, so of course my holiday mix has followed suit. This year, the holiday mix is like the chaos of the Christmas season! Sweet, sentimental and a little bit nutty!
