It is mid-June and I am starting to think of July 4th parties. For years, I have wanted to throw a July 4th brunch and friends, this may be the year!!
Will you be hosting a party or attending a picnic? If so, here’s an easy patriotic snack mix that is perfect for your upcoming July 4th celebration!
I choose to fill my galvanized tiered stand with cute paper cones and loose snack mix. Take a peak!
I am always very well stocked in an assortment of cardstock so that is what I used in red, white and two shades of blue. However, because cardstock is thicker, it was a bit difficult to keep the cone secured and closed. Thinner paper would have been much easier to work with. Anywho…
Cut your paper into 6″ squares. I liked this size for my tiered stand and it used a whole piece of 12×12 scrapbook paper. Win-win!

Now it’s time to move into the kitchen.
What you’ll need to make Patriotic Snack Mix:
- 1 bag of pretzels
- white chocolate to drizzle
- 32 oz cocktail peanuts (salted)
- Rice Chex (about 1/2 a box)
- Corn Check (about 1/2 a box)
- M&M’s (Red, White and Blue bag)
Melt the white chocolate and drizzle it over the whole bag of pretzels. I use these bags and just pop the chocolate in the microwave.
Mix all your ingredients together and either fill cones or put in a festive bowl. If your cones have a small hole in the bottom like mine, be sure to throw in a couple pieces of Chex in first. This will keep the smaller items from falling out.
Don’t you want to grab a handful?
