Hello, Just wondering if anybody has any good snack mix or "nuts and bolts" recipes for the holidays? I would love to make some for company. Thanks.

My step mother makes "trail mix" for the bigger families every year and it's really good. It's just granola, m and m's, peanuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and pretzel goldfish crackers.
Also, the original chex mix recipe (you can find it on the chex cereal boxes or online) is tasty. Try to find the oven recipe though, it's crunchier and better than the microwave version.

I am not really sure what a nut and bolts recipe is but here is one I make and I never ever have enough to go around or to have left overs.....little ones love it too ...but there is a warning: definately not for ones that are on a diet!
1 cup sour cream-8oz.pkg(softend)
8oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup of sugar
mix these until smooth
5 cups of red seedless grapes(rinsed)
I usually just grab a big bunch and add until I feel thay are covered with mixture so it may vary
Stir together and chill
my family isn't big on salads but this one only lasted about half an hour!

I have a pretty tasty snack mix recipe, but I can't find the cookbook so I'm not sure of the measurements.. Of course, you can wing it a little bit until you get the right amount of flavor that you want.

Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix

You'll need:

Popped popcorn, mixed nuts, pretzels, butter, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground red pepper.

Mix together the popcorn, nuts and pretzels. Place the remaining ingredients in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high until mixture is bubbly and stir. Pour over dry mix and stir until everything is coated.

You could also leave out the ground red pepper and use extra ground cinnamon if you don't want the heat. Hope you like it!
