Around the holidays, snack mixes abound, and for good reason! A good holiday snack mix is a great way to keep the gathering family satiated between meals, or can be wrapped up in cute little packages for an easy stocking stuffer or small presents for neighbors, teachers, coworkers, and anyone else you want to express appreciation for. That's why we're rounding up some of our favorite snack mix recipes from Key Ingredient. Enjoy!
Let's start with popcorn, shall we? These festive snack mixes are super easy and have just the right amount of light puffy sweetness.
This marhsmellowy, Grinch-green and red popcorn mix screams Christmas with its vibrant color scheme. This one is also easy and fun to make with the kids. Tie into baggies for easy gifts and stocking stuffers!
We love peppermint during the holidays, so this snow-white peppermint popcorn with green and red M&Ms hits all the right notes. If you're in the mood for a candy cane in snack mix form, this is the pick for you.
And then there's this classic chocolate caramel popcorn combo. These comforting, sweet, and rich flavors are complemented by light and puffy popcorn. Your entire family will be addicted to this snack mix if you whip this up for the holidays.
Onward to another classic snack mix genre: Chex mixes. Chex is super versatile, and these sweet and festive mixes are perfect ways to make the most of this simple cereal.
This recipe makes a sweet and salty mix that you'll never want to stop eating. Bugles form the base of the cute mini santa hats, while mini pretzels, roasted peanuts, craisins, and M&Ms add to the complex flavor and texture—a little sweet, a little salty, a little crunchy, a little chewy, and completely satisfying.
There's a good reason nut mixes are so popular around the holidays. Whether candied or salty and savory, nut mixes are delicious, satisfying, and comforting.
This first pick is actually a bit of a chex and nut mix hybrid. It packs a lot of flavor and a lot of crunch, with ground red pepper, cinnamon, fresh thyme, brown sugar, and maple syrup gracing the surface of pecans, almonds, pretzels, and chex cereal.
These candied nuts are made in the slow cooker for an easy, hands-off option that has plenty of sweet holiday flavors, including ginger, cinnamon, and allspice. Since they can be made in large batches, they also make a great gift around the holidays.
We absolutely adore fresh, piney rosemary during the winter, and these rosemary-sprinkled amonds, walnuts, and pumpkin seeds are no exception. In under 20 minutes, you can whip up these savory roasted nuts and start enjoying them
