The Super Bowl is fast approaching and if you’re like me, you will need some savory snacks to munch on. Even though we won’t be having a party this year, our little family of five will still have a huge spread of appetizers and salty treats to eat, including Snack Mix. What is football without food?

Snack Mix Ingredients

I usually make this snack mix for Christmas to balance out all of the sweet goodies I bake, mostly because my mom and grandma always made it at that time of year. This recipe came from my great-grandma, so it is really special to me. Whenever I make it, I imagine my great-grandma cooking it in her tiny 1930’s kitchen where my grandma grew up. It is similar to Chex Mix, but it has a few different ingredients that make it taste a little better in my opinion. I especially love the Cheerio’s. They taste amazing toasted!

Pro tip: This makes a small batch. I highly suggest doubling it or making 2 batches in a row. It will go fast!
