A close up of sweet and salty Thanksgiving snack mix.

I love making creative treats for holidays, but sometimes I just run out of time and end up throwing together something easy like this Thanksgiving snack mix. My kids call it “gobble gobble mix.” They love helping which is great because it means I have one less thing to make for the big day. ? All it requires is tossing everything together in a really big mixing bowl.

There really isn’t a set recipe for this snack mix. You can add what you like or whatever odds and ends you have hidden in the depths of your pantry. Please tell me I’m not the only one with that problem?!

  • Kettle corn and caramel corn (I used Angie’s BOOM CHICKA POP)
  • Pretzles
  • Bugles (they look like cute little cornucopias)
  • Chex (corn, rice etc.)
  • Roasted peanuts (cashews are a great option too)
  • Reese’s Pieces or Harvest Blend Peanut Butter M&M’s
  • Yogurt covered raisins

I love the combo of sweet and salty! I also love the peanut butter and caramel together. Oddly enough, it really works! Sometimes we add mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups too because my kids think they look like upside down pilgrim’s hats. Just go with ingredients your family likes and it’ll be BIG a hit, I promise!

Easy, 10 minute Thanksgiving snack mix loaded with sweet and salty ingredients.

STORE your Thanksgiving Snack Mix leftovers in an airtight container to keep them fresh. Ideally, they will stay good for up to two weeks. This mix is best enjoyed at room temperature.
If you find the mix has softened, you can briefly toast it in the oven at a low temperature (about 300°F) for a few minutes to bring back its crunch. Remember to let it cool before serving.
