Snack Mix

 

Since my kids were small I have packed snacks for road trips.  The kids are older, and quite frankly, not on many road trips with us, but I still pack snacks.

On a recent trip to the beach I made this snack mix.  This snack mix travels great, and you will not find one at the store as flavorful as this.  You could leave the red pepper flakes out and it would be a great addition to your child’s lunchbox too.

I tried something new and I absolutely love it!  This recipe is basically the seasoning for Crackers with a Kick.  I substituted the crackers for a mixture of crispy cereals, pretzels and cheese crackers.  I did not use pecans, but I think it would be a great addition.  Also, I will definitely make a double batch next time!

  1. This sounds delicious. I crave something crunchy lots of the time.
    I’m gonna try this as soon as I can go
    To the grocery store. I love those Hot
    Crackers!

  2. I made this a couple of weeks ago for
    Wayne and Travis and the boys going
    To the races. They said they were prefect and really enjoyed them!
