Recipe by J e l i s a

Great snack mix for holiday parties, I use red/green M&Ms for Xmas, pastel for Easter, all pink or all blue for baby showers, etc. Makes's better to give them away so you don't eat them all yourself...very addicting.

This mix makes excellent Christmas gifts for teachers, neighbors, co-workers, etc. It's hard to stop eating the mix once you start. Perfect blend of sweet and salty.
