Ever have one of those moments when you realize YOU are in charge of snack for your child’s class, and you only have an hour to throw something together? Yeah, I’ve been there more times than I care to admit. And the idea of plying my child and her classmates with junk food just because it was easier simply doesn’t sit well with me.
So when I found myself in this quandary about a week ago, I was lucky to have a good supply of pantry items I could mix together to make a snack mix. Thanks to the good folks at Alpha-Bits, it was something the kids seemed to really enjoy, too! Bonus: it’s so easy, even my five year old can make it, but not without sampling it as she goes.
This really is simple. Like not even really recipe-worthy. But I’m going to recipe it up for y’all anyway.
Alpha-Bits Snack Mix
- 1-2 part raisins
- 2 parts pretzels of choice
- 1-2 parts marshmallows (I used the very same ones I used for Peppermint Chocolate Popcorn)
- 2 parts Alpha-Bits cereal
Tailor to meet your needs. For a batch big enough to feed my daughter’s class of 13 kids, we use 1-2 cups per ingredient. To make it super-easy, we dump ingredients in to large 2.5 gallon bags, and the kids get to shake it up.
See? Isn’t that simple? You can add or subtract ingredients as you see fit to make your very own Alpha-Bits snack mix. My daughter doesn’t like raisins, but my 2-year-old son does – so she usually trades him raisins for marshmallows. Yeah, she totally gets the better end of the deal there.
