I know, we already have a muddy buddies recipe and we already have a 5 minute Christmas snack mix but whenever I go to parties and like a certain combination in a snack mix I want to make it at home.

There’s nothing I love more than a quick and easy snack mix that the kids can make with me. 

Any chance we’ve got to get together over something delicious is kind of a big deal these days. With three kids it’s busy, but since our three are totally different ages and not at all on the same playing level little traditions like making snack mixes is the perfect way for them to connect. 

How to Make This Christmas Snack Mix

  1. Make the Muddy Buddies

Prepare our best muddy buddies recipe and allow them to cool completely. 

   2. Combine the Ingredients

In a large bowl, combine the muddy buddies, pretzels, m&ms and peanut butter cups. 

   3. Toss everything together and store in a sealed container.

Oh Sweet Basil Pro Tip!

  • You can freeze any leftover snack mix in an airtight container/bag for up to 2 months; thaw at room temperature and munch away!

Variation ideas for Snack Mixes

  • Replace some of the pretzels with popped plain popcorn
  • A white chocolate or milk chocolate drizzle with sprinkles is always fun!
  • Use chocolate covered pretzels instead of plain pretzels
  • Add in mini marshmallows (marshmallows will not keep)
  • Throw in peanuts or cashews
