A mixture of mini pretzels, dried pineapple, whole grain cereal bits and colorful coated candies and raisins are in a small light blue ceramic bowl. the bowl has a white bunny in the center. The bowl sits on a white doilly. There is a small decorative sign that has the words "We believe in the Easter Bunny" next to the bowl.

A bowlful of homemade snack mix is one of my favorite treats to serve when we have company over. This Simple Fruity Snack Mix showcases one of my fave sweet and salty combinations of goodies!

I love to highlight seasonal colors in my homemade snack mixes by using holiday-edition M&M’s Candies (they are just perfect for that purpose, y’all!) and seasonal dried fruits. And nearly all of the snack mixes I create will have a bit and salty and sweet in the bowl, that’s just how I like it!

This Simple Fruity Snack features pastel m&m’s dried tropical fruits, yogurt-covered raisins, sweetened breakfast cereal, and mini-pretzels. It’s so tasty, y’all and I gotta say, it’s pretty easy on the eyes too.

How to make homemade snack mix.

The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to tossing together a homemade snack mix. I like to keep mine seasonal and a bit colorful by including seasonal candies, like m&m’s and Hershey’s kisses. I also typically include a sweet and salty combination of ingredients when it makes sense to do so.

I like to add sweetness not only with candy, but with dried, sweetened seasonal fruits i.e. dried cranberries and apples for winter mixes and dried pineapples and coconut for spring and summer mixes. Mini-pretzels, dry roasted peanuts, sesame sticks, and whole roasted almonds are some of my favorite salty additions to any mix I make.

I also like to make snack mixes with a flavor theme! I love to make a spicy snack mix with Asian flair as well as one with some fiery Tex-Mex spices. Add yes, I will be sharing these recipes with you all over the coming months and I’m super excited to do so!

However, you make your snack mix, I hope you enjoy it.
