I made this for the students in my class and we all loved it. I still make a batch when the sweet-salt cravings hit and this mix satisfies those cravings. Read More

I make similar to this all the time using odds and ends of almost empty boxes - last bits of cereal any type of cracker broken up cookies small handful of baking chips... Daughter never knows what to expect and she loves it! And it uses up stuff that would otherwise sit uneaten because no one EVER seems to want the last serving of something. Read More

Very nice...I like the fact that this is a no nut mix and is perfect for serving to students. I also through in some cheerios and used pretzel goldfish as well as cheddar goldfish which the younger kids love! Served with coloured M&M according to holdiday. I also add mixed nuts to my families mix...peanuts almonds and cashews are the big hits. Read More

Kids' Party Mix Haiku: "Crunchy salty sweet. (Although I like to add nuts.) For kids it's perfect." It was a lazy movie afternoon and we were out of popcorn but had a mixey-uppey pantry of the remnants of everything that this party mix consisted of so it was a nice snack to nibble on. I like that unlike so many snack mixes that require baking in butter and spices that this is just measure pour eat but I think the ratio of ingredients should increase the cheese crackers by a bit.

I made this for my daughter's birthday party along with a few other snacky-appetizer items. This one was the first one everyone went for and was gone in a flash. Read More
