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 :)


Enjoy!

  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?

  4. Nothing remain forever. Then why to keep same patter of work again and again. Why to repeat same strategy for very essay. Use differ strategy for different subjects because every subject has its own meaning. Keep such posts on.รวมเว็บดูบอล
