Tasty Homemade Christmas Muddy Buddies Recipes.
Christmas is such a busy time with all the gatherings and events. So this year, I am going to make some snack mixes to have on hand for surprise visitors, events, or movie nights on the couch. They are so yummy and hit the spot during a Christmas movie marathon or after a sledding party; plus, they don’t take long to whip up! Be ready for the holidays with these Cheery Christmas Snack Mix Recipes that are easy to make, very tasty, and can be prepared ahead of time.

I’ve seen these snack mixes called a couple of different things- muddy buddies, reindeer chow, puppy chow, reindeer munch, Christmas trail mix, Christmas crack, and more. Whatever you call them, they’re super tasty!
20 Cheery Christmas Snack Mix Recipes
Here are some things to remember when making a Christmas snack mix recipe:
- Expect the mixes to look dry. If you are making a savory version of the mixes, expect them to look dry, not greasy or wet.
- Storage. These mixes could last 2-4 weeks if stored properly and not eaten before then! Also, you can store some varieties in the freezer for up to 3 months!
- Add-Ins Welcome. Add in all sorts of ingredients to make your Christmas snack mix even better. I like to add chocolate candies, chocolate chips, nuts, pretzels, marshmallows, cereal, sprinkles, and so much more!
