I LOVE a good snack mix! You may be surprised that I’d eat something with M&M’s, peanut butter chips and white chocolate chips, but I do!!
I made this mix and put them into little goody bags for my Pilates class! They have final exams next week and I like to give them something on the last night of pilates class to help them through their studying!! I love teaching college students! (If you are looking for another gift to make and give, try these Crispy Chocolate Almond Butter Bites!)
This was a fun project to do with my preschooler too! My little guy helped me out and it was a great time! (Except for the fact that he wanted to keep eating all the candy but who can blame him?!)
Santa’s Snack Mix
(taken from Taste of Home, Holiday Cookbook)
♦ 2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
♦ 2 cups chow mein noodles
♦ 1 cup honey roasted peanuts
♦ 1/2 cup raisins (optional. I find it’s sweet enough without them)
♦ 1/2 cup holiday milk chocolate M&M’s
♦ 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
♦ 1/2 cup vanilla or white chips
In two wide-mouth quart jars, layer all of the ingredients. Cover jars. Decorate with fabric and ribbon. To serve, pour into a bowl and stir to combine. Yield: 7 cups
(I quadrupled this recipe to make 25 3/4 cup bags!)
Oops. Never mind the pink bowl with the Christmas snack!
We are paper crafting!
Filling the bags!
