Other Favorite Mixin Combos

I have found that the best combos include at least one salty item like pretzels or peanuts and one sweet item like dried fruit or chocolate chips. Here are some of our favorites.

  • Dried cranberries, slivered almonds and white chocolate chips
  • Butter toffee peanuts and butterscotch chips
  • Reeses pieces, pretzel sticks and peanuts

Optional: For theme parties, add in colored M & M's to match your theme. For every season, you can find bags of M & M's in festive colors or you can order special colored M & M's on line.
