    Party Mix Recipe

    Party mix is one of my favorite snacks during the holiday season. Although I could make the treat any time of the year, I have fond memories of eating the seasoned cereal mix during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. I have thus continued the tradition in my own home by making heaping bowls of party mix for the holidays.
