 Snack Mix

Raise your hand if you like to snack?!

Yeah, me too! In fact, Big Daddy claims all I do is a snack. Welllllll, it could be true! My Ultimate Snack Mix is a flavor explosion and full of crunchy goodness. It’s hard not to snack on it. It’s also easy to throw together and perfect for a party. It will be your new favorite!

I adore this mix. I don’t usually make a ‘Snack Mix’ just for us. I’d eat wayyyyyyyy too much of it. For some reason, I associate the traditional Chex Mix with Christmas. That’s the only time I remember my mother making it. It’s so yummy, isn’t it? Every time I’d walk by the bowl of mix I’d grab a handful…………..


My oldest turned 11 in July. With a group of 10 and 11-year-old boys hanging out for the night, I thought it would be good just to have out so they could munch at their leisure. It was a light bulb moment, 10 and 11-year-old boys Eat. A. Lot.

So this is not your average, every day, traditional, same-ole-boring Snack Mix. For one it uses popcorn oil! I. know. right!? It really adds to the richness and flavor. Then there’s Nacho Bugles and Ranch dressing… well, just take a peek below for the entire recipe.

I hope you enjoy it as much as the boys did!
