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!
Linking up with Comfy in the Kitchen!
I’m going to make these, thanks for sharing:)
Yummy and what a great verse to go along with! :o)
Thanks for sharing.
Just now looked at this! I can make this for all holidays just put different m&ms in it. I love the pink bowl! This will be a new thing I will have when the kids come home from school. Thanks!
Will be making these for my group fellowship party in two weeks. Thanks for sharing!
