Spring has sprung! And I have a Spring Snack Mix that is going to put a little hop in your step (get it… hop, bunnies, spring!)

I’m so pleased to be participating in the 12 bloggers fun this month because the recipes look amazing and it’s just in time for Easter and spring.

This group is 12 fun bloggers, sharing 12 recipes, 12 ingredients or less. Now that is a lot of joy in one post if you ask me.

My recipe isn’t much of a recipe today, more of an idea, but I know you’ll like it.

We aren’t big candy eaters and we don’t often sit down with a bowl of treats just for fun. If we have a treat we’ll eat a few here and there. But twice a year, in the spring and in the fall, I make a fun snack mix and we all really enjoy it. This spring we gave all of the ingredient fun names. Why are fluffy clouds so much more tasty than boring old marshmallows?!

If you are Mormon I bet that you can guess the two times that we make snack mix. And if you aren’t here’s a hint.

This would be a perfect treat to take on a spring or Easter scavenger hunt with the kids, on a kite flying trip, or to pack in a school lunch for a fun surprise.

    We call it conference mix! We make it kind of like chex mix, with chex, Cheerios, pretzels, nuts, then dried fruit and seasonal M&M’s. Always a huge hit with the kids.
