No Bake Delicious Snack Mix (Easy)

Family Favorites


As a family, we're trying to get away from chips and unhealthy snacks. This is one of our favorites, year-round. I always make, at least, two double batches during the holidays.

I usually make a double batch at a time and store it in a large plastic storage container on the kitchen counter with a 1 cup measuring scoop and small brown paper bags on the side for "scoop-and-go" snacks and lunch bag stuffers. (Decorative bags for the holidays.)

A wonderful recipe for kids because there is no baking required. A favorite at Christmas time and all year long for this family. =)

**see additional suggestions in comments section.

Directions Step-By-Step

Place all ingredients in a clean, large plastic bag and slowly tumble until well mixed. Try adding 1 tsp. of dill and garlic at first. Try it and add more if desired... We like a lot, so I usually add more seasonings and a little more oil and taste as I go along until it's just right.
Start with one batch, but if you are like us, you'll be making double batches from then on!
