Recipe – Easy Kids Snack

June 25, 2011 by  

Shake ‘n Go Snack Mix Recipe

We all want quick and easy snacks for our kids don’t we?  I found this easy and fun recipe on Betty’s site!   This would be really cute for a kids party or a late night movie snack.  If the kids wanted to have a camp out in the backyard or it would also be awesome for camping or a beach day. I also think the kids would love to make it.

It is called a recipe, but when there is no flour, sugar, oil or anything to mix up, I have a hard time thinking of it as a recipe.   It is an easy variation on the chex mix that we always think of … you know, the one where you have to mix in the Worcestershire sauce, bake it, pull it out and turn it – bake some more.  (But that is awesome too!)

It is so super simple.  .. well, stir it up, no shake it up I guess.

Here is What You’ll Need:

* 5 cups of Chex cereal (I bet Crispex would also be good)
* 1 cup of Teddy Grahams snacks
* 1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts
* 1/2 cup raisins
* 1/4 cup jelly beans or M&M’s.(Bring on the M&M’s for me!)

Put everything in a big baggie, seal and shake!

You can pour it into fun cones like this, or ice cream cones.  Doesn’t that sound fun?

You can also take the safer route and put it in a no spill travel cup for the kids to snack out of when you are in the car.  Have you seen those other little travel bowls that never spill?  Those would be perfect to put something like this in for the car.

You can see the whole recipe on the  Better Crocker post along with oodles of others of course.  The picture is from the Better Crocker site (it is not my own picture)
