Honestly, this red, white and blue snack mix couldn’t be any easier to throw together. Just mix a handful of tasty ingredients in a big bowl, then coat everything in white chocolate.

The most surprising thing about this party mix–besides how easy it is to make–is how delicious addictive it is. With such a simple ingredient list, I wasn’t expecting much.
But I couldn’t stop eating this stuff! Which may not be a good thing, but I definitely enjoyed it!
I made a big batch of this snack mix for our July 4th neighborhood block party and packaged it up in individual boxes so people could grab it and go.
It was a huge hit, and I got a lot of requests for the recipe, which I basically explained as “put everything you see in a bowl and cover it in white chocolate.”
Obviously this recipes lends itself to substitutions and additions and could be made with a different color scheme for almost any holiday.
For me, the marshmallows are the must include ingredient. I just love the way their sweet, sticky chewiness contrasts with the crunch of the other ingredients.
