Peanut Snow Mix, A Holiday Tradition . . .

Snow Mix has become a holiday tradition! And, now, I’m adding Peanut Snow Mix to my list, which is a variation of the original. In fact, I think it is actually better than the original Snow Mix.

In my previous post, I shared with you that on Saturday, Trey and his children came over for me to help him make Snow Mix. It has been one of my favorite “munch” type snacks to make during the holidays for years. It is both colorful and delicious. Plus, you can change it for the seasons by changing the color or type of M&M’s you choose to use.

Making Peanut Snow Mix . . .

Peanut Snow Mix is a really easy treat to make, which is perfect for the holiday season. You simply stir a few ingredients together, set aside, then break into bite-size pieces. Doesn’t that sound like a really good recipe to keep on hand?  Now more about making Peanut Snow Mix . . .

We made Trey’s Snow Mix with regular M&M candies. Then I made mine with Christmas Peanut M&M’s which were red and green. The peanuts gave the Snow Mix an additional layer of flavor and texture. It was a little different, but it turned out well.

The assembly for the Peanut version of Snow Mix is the same as for the original one.

Here’s the process:

  • Mix both cereals, pretzels, and Peanut M&M candies in a large bowl
  • Melt almond bark
  • Pour almond bark over the cereal mixture
  • Combine well and pour onto a prepared baking pan or Silpat
  • Let set, or chill a few minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Break into bitesize pieces

You can see that there’s nothing difficult about making Peanut Snow Mix at all. It’s even a recipe you can teach your children to make. (You might have to melt the almond bark for them:)) So, why not make a batch today, and either keep on hand for your family or give as gifts? I can tell you, teachers love it, and today, Trey told me the people he gave the Snow Mix to loved it. So there you have it!

Which would you like best: Peanut Snow Mix? or Snow Mix, the original version?
