I’m sure y’all know by now that I love football. I amΒ alwaysΒ looking for new, fun, & easy to eat snacks for game day. This, my friends, is one of them!

It starts with an entire bag of Fritos!! Add in some mixed nuts, chex cereal, pretzels, chocolate, and a homemade caramel glaze and it is amazing! How can you go wrong with those?! Fritos, pretzels, mixed nuts…. those are like essential game day food!

I will say that I actually preferred this snack mix prior to baking it in the oven. Once it is baked in the oven, the glaze hardens. If you don’t bake it, it is more of a soft (and very messy!) snack mix, which I loved. So, try it both ways and see which one you like best.

Speaking of game day, my team plays today at noon so if you need me I will be in my team gear, yelling at the t.v, yelling at my kids to go play upstairs so I can hear πŸ˜‰ (kidding, kind of…..) and maybe eating some football treats. I actually don’t have anything planned to make, I know, shocker!
