Well, my lovely SundaySupper family and I have done some great Back to School recipes for you, we gave you Back to School Lunch ideas and some easy, quick Back to School dinner recipes for those hectic extra curricular activities nights, whether it’s sports, choir, band, cheer, drama, you name it! Those nights can get rough when it comes to dinner time.
“What about snacks?!” You may be asking yourself. Don’t worry! We would never leave you hanging! We know these kids come home from school just starving, and need something to hold them over until dinner. At least my kids do, I swear they think they’re dying! 😂 Thanks to our wonderful SundaySupper host for this Back to School Snacks event, Cricket Plunkett from Cricket’s Confections, and the rest of us SundaySupper folks, we’ve got you covered for snacks!
So lets get started, shall we? I’ve got a real simple snack mix that I like to whip up for my kids. It makes a lot, so I don’t have to replenish the self serve snack area very often. For this particular snack, I create individual snacks using those zipper snack bags, and just put them in what I call The Snack Bag. This way, my kids can come home, drop their stuff, and grab their own snack without me having to drop what I may be doing. Some folks have a whole section of the fridge with different snacks to choose from, but so far my snacks don’t need to take up space in the fridge. For me, that’s a huge bonus!
In this snack mix, I have two different types of cereal consisting of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Vanilla Chex, mini pretzel twists, and later, we add some white chocolate chips. In my recipe ingredients list there are nuts listed, however, my poor Andrea is allergic to all things nuts, so obviously I leave them out. Me, loving all things nuts and not allergic, oh they’d be wonderful in this mix! So feel free to add those or leave them out. I start by taking the cereals and pretzels and tossing them in a bowl. Then I melt the butter, and add honey to the melted butter. Then drizzle that all over the cereal mixture. Toss it really well to coat.
Then spread it out between two baking sheets. I line it with foil for easier clean up. Now it’s ready for the oven. Bake it at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes, stirring once during baking. If you don’t stir at least once, you may end up burning some of it.
Once totally cooled, you can toss your white chocolate chips in, and then store the whole thing in an airtight container, little zipper snack bags, or however you wish to store it. Just make sure it is stored so air won’t get to it.
That’s it! That’s all there is to it. I told you it was easy and quick! And the best part, it’s so good! I have a hard time keeping my hands out of that snack bag. I just constantly remind myself, “that’s for the children!!” 😆
