Peanut Butter Chocolate Snack Mix
I seriously love easy snack mix recipes. They are the perfect thing to put out for parties, gatherings or just snacking while hanging out with family.
Sometimes I really love the savory mixes that I can pick up in the bags at the store. Those are great for taking out on the boat or for car rides.
But when I can indulge in something a little messier, I like to go for mixes coated in either caramel or chocolate. Those are the ones that I really love to dive right in.
So when I saw that this month’s peanut butter bash challenge was peanut butter & cereal, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
This peanut butter chocolate snack mix is absolutely addictive & I’m already craving more.
Homemade Chocolate Snack Mix
When I made this the other weekend we had just finished working on changing the flower bed in the front yard. It was a little more work than it really seemed when we came up with the idea.
I mean really, replacing the old garden border with a new lighted stone border & then extending it out to change the shape didn’t really seem like it would be that hard.
When I look back I suppose it came together quicker than it seemed. I think all-in-all we worked 4-5 hours on the whole project & that included planting a few extra bushes too. I will share that whole outcome here soon.
But I can tell you that once we were done- I was so ready for this snack mix. So we grabbed the bowl of mix, sat out on the porch (it’s our outdoor relaxation spot) & enjoyed our new garden space.
This peanut butter chocolate snack mix was the perfect way to end the long day.
