Cereal Drop Snack Mix Recipe ~ A Family Favorite!

Sharing is caring!

Shortly after my husband and I got married, my grandmother saw what a “snacker” he was and how much he loved her special Cereal Drop Snack Mix recipe.  Every time we’d visit and she had some on her counter, he’d devour way more than he should.  So she insisted that I take the recipe, “be a good wife”, and start making it for him.  She seriously thought I barely fed the guy!  (Which was obviously not true but you got to love grandmas and how much they fuss over the amount of food that everyone consumes.)

So through the years, I dig this beloved recipe out and make it a couple times a year for my family.  I love that it’s really simple and only takes a few minutes to create but is loved by everyone.  Plus, bonus points for me when grandma asks if I ever make it and I get to say YES!

Too funny! My mom seems to think I never "feed" my husband either. lol! This looks like a yummy snack. I'd have to tweak it some due to my girls' food allergies, but I think I with a few modifications it'd be safe and yummy for them!
