My Grandma always had a homemade snack – usually a sweet one – for her grandkids. I remember making gooey caramel popcorn with her one cold Winter day. The still-warm caramel melted into my mouth and paired perfectly with the crunch of the popcorn. And I remember snacking on White Chocolate Muddy Buddies at the picnic table outside her camper one Summer day.
There’s just something about food and memories. Maybe it’s the way cooking and eating triggers our senses. Capturing special moments in our mind, just waiting for those senses to release sweet memories years later.
That’s why I love making special snacks and treats for my kids during the holidays. I know it’s what they will remember. Here’s one easy and so so yummy snack mix recipe perfect for the holiday season: Christmas Muddy Buddies.
