Holiday Chex Mix aka Snack

This is a family must-have every holiday season! Whether it’s a small house party or formal family dinner, it’s great to have a snacking option for people to enjoy, like chex mix.

My family’s recipe is called “snack.” I grew up eating my mom’s original version of snack, my grandma’s version (with cheerios), and many other family versions…and they are all delicious with their variations!

I’ve made my version a few times already this year, and with Thanksgiving a few days away I will be making a double batch soon! See below for the ingredients and directions for Snack and Snack the original.
