There are Those Days when hectic schedules call for easy, portable, nutritious snacks that can curb hunger until meal time. Something filling, protein-packed, fun to eat, and won’t spoil.

Hello, Cinnamon Sugar Candied Nuts Snack Mix.  That’s a mouthful to say, but it’s also a happy mouthful of undeniable deliciousness. We’re talking extra crunchy candied nuts coated in a delightful homemade cinnamon sugar mixture.

We could just stop there – and sometimes we do – but if you take it just a bit further, it becomes a tantalizing snack mix. Yogurt covered pretzels, dried berries, and chocolate covered raisins or nuts play extremely well together.

Homemade candied nuts are so much better than store bought.

Cinnamon Sugar Nuts are perfect for parties, gifts, and Road trips

These nutty treats are ridiculously yummy any time of day and are perfectly portable. It’s safe to say we are addicted to these cinnamon sugar candied nuts, and everyone I ever share these with says the same.

We often pack candied nuts to take out outings, parties, or gatherings.  People love noshing and munching away on these crunchy treats.Try putting a bowl of these at the center of the table at your next get together. Guaranteed happy munching.  Plus totally empty bowl. How can everyone not love this stuff?

Loaded with cinnamon, crispy sugar coating, your favorite nuts, and chocolate coated goodies. I used dried cranberries to offset the sweetness and provide a bit of chewiness. Chocolate covered raisins and pretzels are a phenomenal balance of sweetness and crunch.

This is a must-try snack for fall, winter, or gift-giving.  Fill a mason jar full of this tasty goodness and revel in the wide-eyed smiles.

Fall in Minnesota:


That’s a random shot I took while strolling in the wild.  The colors are much more spectacular in person.  I could have spent all day here.  Blanket + book + this place = a little bit of paradise.

There are some seriously splendid spaces to romp, roam, chase, build, and run.  The boys built forts out of 6-foot sticks while Hubby and I climbed rocks and took selfies.

Being in the great outdoors is good for the body, mind, and soul.  It increases your IQ.  Or something like that.

Here’s to squeezing in as many fun moments as is possibly possible.
