Sweet Party Mix Recipe

Make your own party mix at home. A snack mix is extremely easy to make. This is the perfect snack for school lunches, parties, beach outings, or picnics. This snack mix combines cocoa almonds, cereal, pretzels, and honey. The possibilities are endless for variations. Adding a different cereal, white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips are just some of the options. I have provided a recipe for cocoa almonds. Of course you do not have to make cocoa almonds but can instead buy them at the store already prepared. Cocoa almonds make a delicious healthy snack all on their own.
