Apple Pie Chex Mix

IMG_5996

OMG by far my new favorite snack!! This is super easy to mix up and it’s not overly sweet. I couldn’t find dried apples in the store so I just crushed some apple chips and they worked fine. The nuts get a little lost in there so if you wanna leave those out you can it’s not going to ruin the dish. This is one of the items in my gift basket this year (if I can stop snacking on it). I can’t wait for people to try this!
