Every Thursday a group of women invade my home. We divide and rotate snack duties to keep the expense and effort minimized while providing maximum snacky goodness for all who attend. Yesterday my friend Krystal introduced me to my newest vice – popcorn snack mix, you see I’m a sucker for combinations of salty and sweet. Wielding a spatula, I threatened, asked very nicely for her recipe. It’s a mistake anyone could have made, after all I wasn’t being polite and my words were muffled by pretzel sticks and mini Oreos.
Recipe for Popcorn Snack Mix
- 4 cups popped popcorn
- 2 cups mini Oreos
- 2 cups thin pretzel sticks
- 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
- 1 1/2 cups raisins
- 1 1/2 cups dried pineapple
- scant 1/2 cup sugar (scant just means just barely 1/2 cup)
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 TBSP melted butter
In a gigantic bowl add the popcorn, cookies, pretzels, walnuts, pineapple, and raisins.
In a mug or small bowl stir together the sugar and cinnamon.
Drizzle the popcorn mixture with the melted butter, sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar, and toss gently to coat.
Hide the leftovers from yourself in an airtight container.
