Nuts, Bolts, and Screws Party Mix

Homemade snack mix recipe. Holiday party snacks.
This is a recipe that my sister-in-law made every Christmas and would give to friends to enjoy. I got the recipe and continued the tradition until a few years ago. It is fun to make and is so nice to share with friends and neighbors to enjoy. It can be made anytime of the year. Since I had not made it in some time, this is when I tried to find the spice Beau Monde and was surpirsed that it was no longer available in the local grocers. Thanks to The Spice House, I will be able to continue my Christmas tradition.

This is by far the best chex mix recipe going. If you haven’t tried it, you’re really missing out on wonderful snacking. With Super Bowl around the corner, your recipe will be gone before the half!

I also have this recipe (since Ruby Pierola is my Mother), and it is excellent. Everyone enjoys this snack. I always look forward to Christmas because I know she will be making this recipe.

Hope everyone enjoys this recipe!
