Coming up with creative snacks for my family is something I love to do. With three kids in my household, there is a lot of snacking going on! Buying prepackaged snacks gets very expensive and can easily break the grocery budget. Having snacks on hand helps keep my budget on track and keeps the kids happy!
This Pizzaria Snack Mix is a perfect snack to have on hand. You can make a big batch on Sunday and have it available all week-long. The Pizzaria Snack Mix can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. A bowl of this snack mix and a Orange Banana Smoothie makes for a perfect afternoon snack.
Going on a family outing? Put some of this snack mix in zip-lock bags and a delicious snack available.
Having a family get-together? This is also a perfect snack to set out at a family bar-b-que or any other family function.
