An easy and delicious sweet and salty snack mix to make for your next party or yourself is always a hit.
I’m not a sports fan. Like at all. So it should not be a surprise to anyone that I do not care about the Super Bowl. Not even the commercials.

Unfortunately for me, my family all love sports and the Super Bowl is a big deal. So I am often roped in going to a party, and whenever I’m invited to a party, I’m asked to bring some kind of snack.

Luckily, I love snacks. My husband hates when I bring a few boxes of Chex home because he knows that he will be eating nothing but Chex mix for days on end. The struggle is real, folks.
For these reasons, I try not to make things like this if there aren’t going to be other people eating it. Because I can and will eat it all.
This is a pretty easy and uncomplicated snack mix. There’s nothing fancy about it, but it’s delicious. I actually got the idea from eating peanut butter Fritos at a Super Bowl party a while back, and kind of expanded on it.
The best part is that you can customize it however you want. I like thick-cut wavy potato chips and Fritos, so those definitely had to go in. And what kind of person makes a sweet and salty snack mix without pretzels? So those are a must.
For the sweet, I used melted chocolate and peanut butter mixed with honey. And for an extra dose of saltiness, I sprinkled mine with some coarse sea salt, because why not?
But you can make it however you want. Popcorn, peanuts, Rice Krispies — the possibilities are endless. Just know that once you start eating it, you probably won’t be able to stop.
