Merry Christmas homesteaders, and a blessed New Year too all!
The homesteadbloggers are an industrious bunch, with many traditions being celebrated and heaps of holiday cookies and other goodies prepared as families gather to commemorate the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ. As I was reading along I imagined how wonderful it would be to turn the latch on each door entering into homes filled with the aroma of holiday treats, crackling fires and laughter and warm embraces. The homestead spirit is an especially blessed one this time of year and how gracious of our Lord to give us peace to live simply with quiet and thankful hearts. Praise Him.
What can I share? This great snack mix makes a wonderful gift when given in a tin or decorative jar. And in the spirit of simplicity…….
SWEET AND SALTY SNACK MIX
2 large pkg. white chocolate chips
3T. vegetable oil
1 large pkg. M&M’s ( red and green for Christmas)
1-10 oz. pkg. small pretzels
2 cups salted peanuts
5 cups Cheerios
5 cups Rice Chex
Melt chocolate chips and oil in the microwave, stirring often until smooth. Mix the rest of the ingredients in large bowl. Pour melted chocolate chips over mixture and stir to coat. Spread out onto a wax paper covered counter. Let set up, break apart and it’s ready to go. Makes 8 quarts.
