Not long ago my family was on a road trip. We stopped at a little specialty food market to grab snacks and I happened to pick up a canister of over-priced gourmet party mix.

That same evening we popped open the can of party snack mix and discovered we could not keep our hands out of it.

The party mix seemed to have all the right components to keep you coming back for more. Salty, sweet, tangy, spicy, cheesy, nutty… It was perfectly balanced to be irresistible.

After taking a closer look at the ingredients, I noticed everything in the mix was a grocery-store staple snack item. (They were shaped differently, but still.)

Honey Roasted Peanuts, Spicy Corn Chips, Mustard Pretzels, Cheese crackers, and Sesame Sticks.

Certainly we could make this same snack mix at home at a much lower cost.

So we did! And I’m sharing the Perfect 5-Ingredient Party Mix recipe so you can make it as at home as well.

All you need are these pre-made ingredients in equal portions… although Lt. Dan would tell you to add extra mustard pretzels, because those are the pieces he likes the best.
