game day chex mix ♥

With sports season in full swing, we're at so many games during the week - between field hockey and volleyball - it seems like we're forever looking for game time munchies to hold us over till we get home to dinner...

My girls & I made this fall snack mix a few weeks ago and it was really good -
we found the recipe here and adapted it just a little bit 

we had trouble finding the caramel bugels that the recipe called for 
so we used regular ones and doubled the brown sugar topping instead

mix the chex, pretzels & bugels all together in a really big bowl
spread it all out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

mix the melted butter, vanilla, brown sugar & pumpkin pie spice 

pour the topping over the dry mix and bake!
add candy after it's cooled - as much or as little as your heart desires ♥

put your snack mix in a cookie jar, add a cute scoop and enjoy! 

we munched on it the whole week and took snack bags full with us to enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate at all the outdoor games :)

  1. It looks delicious and I just might make a batch this month! But even more, I am admiring the autumn cross-stitch in the background. Did you make that? It is gorgeous and I would love to make one like it!

  2. Jamie,

    I was going to ask the same question about the cross-stitch piece. Is the pattern available?


  3. Oh my gosh - that looks SO good that I'd never be able to stop nibbling!! Love your cross stitch, too!
