I want to make a few snack mixes for a family get-together. I'll probably halve the recipes so that I have more variety. What is your absolute favorite snack mix? Healthy is a plus.

Thanks, midwestchef! This looks good. I'm not sure I can find almond flour and almond butter, but if I can this will definitely be worth trying.

Kettle Corn

White sugar makes the Kettle Corn taste like popcorn balls. Use brown sugar and it will taste like caramel corn.

Hi, buy in packets. a wiki description. try and be amazed. cheers. The English name originates from the city of Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay), India. It consists of a variable mixture of spicy dried ingredients, which may include fried lentils,[1] peanuts, chickpea flour noodles, corn, vegetable oil, chickpeas, flaked rice, fried onion and curry leaves. This is all flavoured with salt and a blend of spices that may include coriander and mustard seed.

I'll check out the bombay (punjabi) mix! Love the green olives idea, too. Healthy is a plus, but not essential. Thanks, Don.

Hello Elle - I will post a few that we've tried and really enjoy. Veggie pizza is always my favorite, I never make it the same way twice as I always change up the veggies.

Yum! I might thicken this with a little cream cheese and make mini sandwiches with this. Or replace the mayonaise with cream cheese and stuff some celery with it. Thanks, Molly!
