This Easter Snack Mix is perfect for a quick afternoon pick me up. It has the combination of m&ms, pretzels, cereal mix and other goodies.
Flashback to 20 years ago.
I would beg or more like throw a temper tantrum in the local grocery store for the latest and greatest cereal. It was usually Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs or anything else just coated with sugar to get my attention. The sad thing is 95% of the time I ended up hating the actual cereal and it would just get thrown away.
What I do remember with Lucky Charms is that I would empty the cereal into a large bowl and dig out the marshmallows. I mean you would think by now that they would just sell the actual marshmallows because that is what the kids really want. Case in point I bought a box to make this Easter Snack Mix. My daughter instantly sees the box for the first time and knows that she wants whatever is in it.
After seeing her devour a bowl of Lucky Charms, I know that this Easter Snack Mix won’t last long in our house. Typical me I’m putting all the blame on my two-year-old, but my inner kid was dying to make this mix. It’s the type of snack that you can basically combine all of your favorite sweets and get away with it.
Feel free to substitute with other ingredients to make it your own. I would love to know if you’ve made the Easter Snack Mix for yourself or loved ones. Please leave a comment below.
