Homemade Snack Mix Recipe

When I was a kid, my mom used to make a homemade snack mix for us.  I loved it when she pulled out the turkey roaster, because I knew I was in for a special treat!  The house would smell so good; the mixture of spices blended and warming up together in the oven… I would anxiously wait for her to give me a sample when she would check on the mix!

This is a modified version of her recipe, but it’s just as delicious!  It can be put in lunch boxes for a recess snack, served as the snack for soccer practice, or if you need me to suggest it: it goes really well with beer!

MRSMUFFINTOP'S SNACK MIX

You can store this snack mix in ziploc bags.  I sometimes take it as a hostess gift for playdates, and I put it in a mason jar and tie some twine around the lid.  It’s really pretty, and everyone begs me for the recipe!
