Football season is here! Can you believe we’ve already entered the end of the year stretch? I can’t! I love the lazy days of summer full of swimming, no schedules and lots of fresh vegetables and salads. But I may love falling leaves, big chunky sweaters and football even more!
Fall is an awesome time to get together with friends and family on a Sunday afternoon and enjoy a meal and a few games on the TV, but if you’re like me, finding time to get it all together can be a challenge when you have three kids plus yourself and your husband all involved in something during the week! So if you can’t pull of a big meal each week, try throwing together some fun party food!
Most of us love a plate full of snacks and finger foods while hanging out anyway, so don’t stress and take advantage of some of my favorite recipes like Buffalo Chicken Dip, Veggie Dips and this NEW Sweet & Salty Snack Mix that you won’t be able to quit eating!
Thank you to M&M’S® for partnering today with us to bring you this sponsored conversation!
Sweet and salty may be one of my favorite combinations! There’s just something about it that makes me want more and more! Here I’ve put together a few of my favorite snack items that you may already have in your pantry. And if not, you can stop by CVS on your way home and pickup everything you see here!
Popcorn, pretzels, peanuts and M&M’S® ! YUM!! This snack mix is the perfect combination of sweet and salty PLUS it’s not expensive to put together!
What’s easier than grabbing a few bags of ingredients at the store and mixing together in a big bowl? Not much! You could even have the kids whip this fun snack mix up while you’re doing a little last minute straightening up before your guests arrive. Or if you’re like me, throw all the clutter in a basket and deal with it later! haha! That’s just a little mom hack that comes in handy in a pinch!
