Let’s get this party started! The holidays have officially begun and my kids are already begging for the first batch of Party Mix. It is a holiday tradition in the Fitzy house and who am I to deny them.
Our fascination with Party Mix started when I was just a kid. My grandmothers would make huge batches to be shared (and devoured) by everyone. Why do we call it Party Mix? Well this stuff was made before the days of pre-made Chex mix that is now sold in the stores and my family always made a batch before the holiday party. 🙂
Quick and easy snack that pleases everyone.

This recipe is good y’all! We love that you can mix and match your favorite ingredients to get just the perfect combination of yummy. Don’t like wheat Chex or nuts. Great…you won’t have to pick them out like you do in the store bought bags. Plus an added benefit of making this at home…you don’t have to interpret any mystery ingredients.
Over the years we have tried different ingredients to determine our family favorites. Always a favorite are the pretzels. Nothing like the fun of adding holiday pretzels to the mix. Is it just me or is there something magical about eating christmas tree shaped pretzels during the holidays?!?!
I hope your family enjoys the Party Mix as much as we do! Happy holidays!
