Pot of Gold Snack Mix for St. Patrick’s Day!
If you’re looking for a fun way to brighten up St. Patrick’s day for the family, this adorable snack mix will be a fun thing to set out! It’s also perfect for school groups and get-togethers.
A Healthier Option:
One thing I noticed when looking at St. Patrick’s Day Treats online was the vast amount of sweets and sugar in most recipes!! Whoa!
I admit I do have a sweet tooth, but sometimes adding a bowl full of candy to other sweets like mini cookies and chocolate is just a little too much. I got the idea of making a snack mix a little less sugary! This one would work better for smaller kids, or if you yourself aren’t a fan of sweets.
You might notice this snack mix does contain M&M’s and Sprinkles. If you’re staying away from sweets all together, feel free to skip this option or even add a handful of Lily’s Sugar Free Chocolate Chips (The White Chocolate would look better in the bowl).
Additions for this St. Patrick’s Day Snack Mix:
I love the Rainbow Pepperidge Farm Goldfish for this mix. Of course it goes along with the Rainbow and Leprechaun St. Patty’s day theme! And, everyone likes these no matter what age group you’re in. 🙂
The fun thing about this snack mix is that I also added Veggie Straws! The green and yellow really brighten up the snack mix. Plus, I think it needed more green — just to be festive. You can find Veggie Straws in most stores. I found that the Sea Salt flavor worked well in this mix. It wasn’t a weird mix of flavors like if I had used the Ranch flavored ones.
This Slow Cooker Garlic Buffalo Chicken Dip is absolutely delicious and best of all it’s dairy free!
These Grinch Mint Cookies are a must for any upcoming holiday baking. They are absolutely amazing! You could also call them Leprechaun Cookies for St, Patricks day.
