Red, White and Blue Crunch Mix

1 review

My colorful snack mix makes a festive treat for a large group or potluck or even to bring as a grab-and-go snack for a parade. I took it to my school’s faculty lounge once and it was gone before recess! You can use different colored candy disks for various occasions.
