Gameday Series Recipes: Snack Mix

As we continue our Gameday Series of recipes, today we have a fan favorite, snack mix.

This recipe is part of our gameday series. It makes a lot, it is tasty, and it is easy to share. This is one of those recipes you need to be ready to eat a lot of, shouldn’t be too hard though, as it is incredibly addicting. I like to make it before college football on Saturday and snack on it through primetime on Sunday night.

Gameday Snack Mix: Always a Crowd Pleaser

The beautiful thing about this recipe is that you can add or remove anything you don’t like while at the same time you can add more of the things you do like very easily. I would recommend trying to keep the ratios somewhat similar to what is listed here. If you take too many things out, it will turn out oily, and if you add too many things in it will come out dry.
