Hey guys!!!  I have another great post for you today featuring out favorite snack Goldfish® crackers!

I already told you how Goldfish crackers are a lifesaver during holiday shopping and traveling and now I want to share with you an amazing recipe with them!

We love snacking on Goldfish crackers right out of the bag but around the holidays I love to make this flavorful simple snack mix.

When Christmas rolls around I am in charge of making the snacks for present opening at my grandparent’s house (we have a large family so this takes awhile, thus the snacks lol)  My grandma used to make a recipe similar to this one, so I knew it would be the perfect snack to pass around among my hungry family half buried in crumpled wrapping paper and ribbon!

My Ranch Goldfish crackers Snowball Mix is perfect for the holidays.  I serve it at parties and everyone always requests it while we are opening presents at my grandma’s house.  This mix also is perfect for giving to your friends, you can fill up little cellophane bags or mason jars and top with a bow, perfect!

I often make this snack mix with just the Goldfish crackers like my grandmas used to, but I thought adding the white cheddar popcorn would look like big fluffy snowballs and turn this already delicious snack into a festive treat!

This mix is so addicting and it is fun and easy to make so let’s get to it!
First you just mix a little oil with an envelope of dry ranch mix in a gallon ziploc bag and add in a bag of Goldfish crackers. This is where your kids can help! You then shake up the bag to mix the Goldfish crackers with the seasoning.

From there you just dump them on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.  Easy peasy!
