Homemade Snack Mix

I love snack mix. I love snacking but I specifically love snack mix. I used to buy snack mix from the store, eat everything I liked from the mix and then be done with it. This was silly. About that time, Chex brand cereal started to print the recipe for Chex Mix on the back of all of their boxes. So, I began making my own chex mix from their recipe. I soon realized I was still putting all of those things in the mix that I didn’t want! I was just following the recipe and still picking out all if the things that weren’t my fave.

By this time, I was older and wiser and incredibly more confident and independent so I decided to make snack mix with ONLY THE THINGS I WANT IN IT! Y’all… game changer!

Until now, I had never really written this recipe down. I had just made it and added a little more of this and that each time. I’m sure I will still do that because I always find different snacks that I want in the mix. But for your benefit, I created the actual recipe for Melissa Tate’s Homemade Snack Mix.

Oh, also, I recorded my first IGTV episode for this recipe! If you’re on Instagram, take a look at it! I’m sort of digging the IGTV!
