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!

I didn’t worry about using my Cameo for cutting the squares, but I did use it to make these cute patriotic doilies into stickers with this paper.

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.
