PEEPS Snack Mix #SpringSweetsWeek

PEEPS Snack Mix is an irresistible mix of almond bark coated cereal, popcorn, pretzels, candy-coated chocolate candies and PEEPS, and is seriously addictive!

This post and recipe was created for #SpringSweetsWeek. I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies, but as always opinions are 100% mine.

PEEPS Snack Mix - Home Sweet Homestead

To me, nothing says Spring has arrived more than one, the arrival of daffodils, and two, PEEPS® showing up on store shelves. Since both are now on the scene, I decided to welcome my favorite season, by adding those sugar coated puffs of marshmallow goodness to my favorite snack mix. Say hello to the deliciously sweet and salty PEEPS Snack Mix!

Welcome to my second post for #SpringSweetsWeek. This recipe is cute, colorful, sweet and salty, and ADDICTIVE! The combination of different textures from the cereal, popcorn, pretzels and PEEPS are amazing, and once you start, you wont be able to stop yourself from grabbing "just one more handful" again and again.

Cool completely, then break into bite-size pieces.

April's tip:

I made this PEEPS snack mix with pastel colored M&M's, so it is not dairy free. I just found out there is a dairy free version available called No Whey Choco No Nos. I couldn't find them in my area so I haven't tried them yet, but I plan on ordering some soon.
