Holidays are major snack times for us! You, too? I thought so!
Chex Mix is always a favourite. And we have a blast mixing up in different ways... extra salty (blame me)... chocolate-y... you name it.
This Christmas and New Year's will be no different. In fact, we've been making it every few days this month. :D
