Snowy Snack Mix Recipe

Snowy Snack Mix Recipe
Yummy treats are an integral part of the holidays, and the following Snowy Snack Mix is perfect to set out in fancy holiday bowls so guests and family can snack. It’s easy – similar to Muddy Buddies – with red and green candies. It can also be made weeks ahead and will keep well through New Years and beyond (not to worry – there will be minimal leftovers because it’s addicting). You can vary the candies to your liking; just make sure the candies you add are red and green.

About 48 1/2 cup Servings

1 12 oz. package Crispix cereal
4 cups mixed nuts

40 ounces almond bark vanilla coating
