If you’re looking for an easy no-bake recipe to whip up and deliver to family and friends this holiday season, I’ve got you covered! I originally shared this recipe over 4 years ago and since then I’ve made it several times as a gift for coworkers, hostess gifts, etc. It takes about 5 minutes to make and can easily be portioned into bags, boxes or jars to spread some holiday cheer.
This simple mix of popcorn, pretzels, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), peanuts and craisins is covered in white chocolate for a festive treat! You can easily customize this mix based on what you have on hand. I’ve subbed Chex cereal for prezels, almonds for peanuts and raisins for craisins.
If you want to make this even easier, you can layer the ingredients into jars, put the white chocolate chips in a ziploc bag at the top and deliver them as gifts to allow recipients to make the mix themselves!
Here’s how you make it:Print
An easy to assemble gift-in-jar that’s perfect for friends, teachers and coworkers
- 1 cup Chex cereal (rice or corn)
- 1 cup air-popped popcorn
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup Craisins
- 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
- Layer ingredients into a mason jar in the order listed above.
- Attach a tag with the following directions: “To make blizzard bites, carefully remove chocolate chips with a spoon. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips. Pour remaining jar contents into a large bowl, top with melted chocolate and stir until well coated!”
What do you think? Could this recipe BE any easier?! I don’t think so!
Make a few jars for friends, and then make up a batch for yourself. I recommend enjoying this delicious snack mix while watching your favorite holiday movie!
