Reese's Snack Mix
Sure, you can buy a bag of snack mix at the store, but then you're left with a pile of raw, unsalted peanuts that no one wants to eat. Instead, mix your own! This version from Hoosier Homemade only takes six ingredients (half of which involve chocolate) and whips up quickly. Prefer different add-ins? Customize to what your family loves!
Movie Night Snack Board
Movie night just got a whole lot better. This film-themed board brings your fave cinema treats to your fingertips, with options like popcorn, licorice and gummy bears, all you have to do is press "play." Head to Simply Made Recipes to get all the inspiration.
