Party Mix Recipe

party mix recipe

Already a New Year. Where did the time go? We celebrated the New Year in Quebec. The 31st we always visit my family and the 1st we visit my husband's family. With my family we eat, sing, and play games. We enjoy being together to start the New Year.
When visiting my husband's family on January 1st we meet his uncles, aunts, and cousins. It is another night of eating, dancing, and having fun together.

I want to offer my readers my Party Mix recipe. It is a recipe that my children request when visiting us and watching a movie. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Happy New Year 2014!

  4. My family is addicted to the old fashioned traditional homemade nuts and bolts recipe which is (sadly) the number one post on my site... and this looks like a welcome change. Cannot wait to make it - and won't wait for Christmas, either. The next chilly weekend sounds like the time, to me!

  5. This would be great for an at home movie night with hubby and the kids!

  6. My mother in law makes a version of this at Christmas time. It is so good

  7. This is great for when you have a gang in! Must remember to make over the holidays :)

  8. I have several recipes for party mix, but I don't think I have one that includes popcorn. Party Mix is on my list of things to make someday, but, even though it would be easy to make, I've never gotten around to it.

  9. My boys would really love this. I should make it for their birthday party!
