During the holidays, it's not unusual for guest to drop by unannouced. After all, 'tis the season of family gatherings and togethernes. But don't let the unexpected catch you off guard. I like to have snack at the ready, just for such occassions, and this popcorn and pretzel sweet snack mix is the perfect combination of sweet and salty that keeps them coming back for more. Here's how you make it:


 

Reynolds® Foil

1

2.9 oz. bag microwave low fat popcorn

2

cups mini pretzels

1

cup coarsely chopped roasted almonds

1

cup coarsely chopped sweetened dried cranberries

1

bag (12 oz.) premium white baking morsels (chips)

1 1/2

teaspoons ground cinnamon

LINE a 15 1/2x10x1-inch baking pan or large tray with a sheet of foil; set aside.

POP popcorn according to package directions; shake bag so that un-popped kernels fall to the bottom.

POUR popcorn, pretzels, almonds and dried cranberries into large bowl. Discard un-popped popcorn kernels.

MELT white morsels according to package directions. Stir in cinnamon; pour over popcorn and pretzels. Toss to evenly coat.

SPREAD evenly on parchment lined tray. Let set to harden, about 1 hour. Break apart large pieces. Store in airtight container.

Moms, what are your favorite snacks to serve guests during the holidays ?
