Maple Snack Mix

Maple as a snack food? We think its a great idea! Sweet, salty, spicy and crunchy, this mix is an addictive addition to any game day menu. Don’t make this one too far ahead of time, or you’ll be out of snacks before kickoff.



  • 6 slices extra crispy bacon, crumbled
  • 6 cups Chex cereal
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/3 cup maple
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Combine cereal and peanuts in a large bowl and mix in cayenne pepper. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, bring maple syrup and 1 teaspoon of butter to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, remove from heat and gently stir in remaining butter. Pour slowly over the chex and peanut mixture, tossing to evenly coat the cereal and nuts. Mix in bacon and sprinkle with sea salt to finish.
