So I thought, what a perfect after school snack to make to celebrate being back at school, especially since the kids were going to neighbor's house that night. This snack mix isn't just great for a school snack, but is also great for tailgating and the holidays. You can make the mix festive and coordinating to whatever you are celebrating. :)
