Hey guys! Welcome Back to Blogmas! I hope you’re enjoying it so far. If you have checked out day 1 and day 2 make sure you do, so that you don’t miss any of the holiday fun. Today’s post is one that I’ve been so excited to share with you guys. It’s another Bake With Me, which are some of my favorite posts to write. I love being in the kitchen especially at the holidays so I’m going to try and incorporate as many Bake With Me’s as I can without going overboard. Today I want to share a recipe my family makes every year from Thanksgiving through New Years. It’s one of my favorite snacks and truly signifies that the holidays have begun. We are going to be making Party Mix, which is really just a festive way of saying Chex Mix.

Like I said Party Mix is one of my all time favorite snacks and I love that my family saves it for this special time of year. It’s a great recipe for getting the kids involved. It has minimal prep and it has fairly straight forward ingredients. Pop on your favorite Christmas movie in the background and get ready to make a snack the whole family can enjoy.
