St. Patrick’s Day Snack Mix- Leprechaun Bait!
Want a quick and easy snack that even the pickiest leprechaun would have trouble resisting? Try our easy St. Patrick’s Day Snack Mix recipe!
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels (to be popped)
- 2 cups Rice Chex Cereal
- 1/4 cup white candy melts
- 1/4 cup green candy melts
Pop the popcorn.
Add popped popcorn to a large bowl.
Add Rice Chex Cereal to the bowl and stir gently to combine.
Melt each color of candy melts. I typically place the melts in a bowl and microwave them at 15 second intervals. Stir after each 15 minute interval until fully melted. Add melted candy by spoonfuls to the snack mix.
Gently stir the ingredients together until the melted candy has coated much of the popcorn and cereal. Spread the snack mix on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Sprinkle some sprinkles over the mix.
Let the mix sit for 20-30 minutes to allow the candy to harden. At this point, the snack mix is ready to serve! If you are not enjoying the mix immediately, store it for up to a few days in an air-tight container.
