The Holiday Season is Here!!! Well maybe it is a little early – but I tend to start breaking out the decorations during the first week of Nov.

When coming up with this Holiday Chex Mix I wanted it to be something that had tons of layers of flavor as well as being gluten – free

This is the perfect mix to get you into the holiday mood and easiest enough to throw together in 5 minutes FLAT

Everything you need to make this recipe is above the most important elements is the cinnamon and vanilla Chex Mix – make sure to find the one’s that say gluten – free on the box ( if you are concerned about making the mix gluten – free)

I then roamed around the bulk section at Winco and picked up sweet and salty elements with different textures for the mix

I do not know the name of the ones that look like raspberries but it is a candied peanut – I know I know I should of looked more closely BUT I got to excited being in the bulk section at Winco ( sigh I am easily excited)

Here is a closeup of the photo shoot — my awesome dad setting up the mix so I can photograph itΒ  ( Thanks Dad!)

BUT it was my decision to add the sprinkles around the board WHICH became a huge mess later – FYI πŸ˜‰ Plus there is the good ol’ Christmas tree we found at Goodwill

Now let’s get some closeup shoots ( those are my favorite)

I really like using sprinkles to add a little extra something to my mixes – if you are wanting a more salty mix exchange the butter toffee peanuts for salted peanuts — but why would you not want butter toffee peanuts is beyond me.

My whole family tried the mix and loved it πŸ™‚ I love it too — it will last a while after it is made ( I am actually eating some right now and I made this dish a couple days ago πŸ˜‰ )

Okay one more look
