Sweet ‘n’ salty flavors pair with cranberries and white chocolate in this ADDICTING cranberry bliss snack mix! Make a big batch because it’ll go fast!
Introducing the snack mix you will be nonstop face shoving all the way til midnight tonight.
There’s sweet ‘n’ salty, cranberries, and a whooooooole lotta bliss. Ask me about the time I hid this snack mix from myself because it was so freaking addicting.
I wouldn’t recommend pulling a stunt like that for your New Years Eve tonight though, guys. Gather a big bunch ‘o peeps, a few cocktails, and a big bowl of this snack mix and you’re set til midnight.
Just sayin, I would love an invite.
For how good this sweet ‘n’ salty cranberry bliss snack mix is, you would probably NEVER even anticipate how incredibly easy it is to pull off.
I use a mix of oyster crackers, chex cereal, pretzels, and sliced almonds for the base and then the gamechanger here is the quick, caramel-like butter/sugar sauce. It is nothing short of INSANE with the salty crackers and cereal.
A quick 20 minute trip to the oven and then try your hardest to not demolish the whole thing while you wait for it to cool because once it’s cooled it’s time to toss in ALL the cranberry and white chocolate goodness.
And trust me, that last step just seals your fate on eating approximately 29802983 handfuls of this crunch, sweet ‘n’ salty snack insanity.
Diets don’t start until tomorrow, y’all. It’s snackin’ time.

Are the oven temps correct? And the time?
After 15 min in a 350 degree oven – the items looked burnt
Perhaps your oven runs a bit hotter than mine? I would suggest lowering the temp to 325 and seeing if that helps.
The ingredients say almonds but directions say pecans, is there a preference? I couldnt tell by the photo which was used.
Sorry for that typo Patti! It is almonds. 🙂
Great!! Thank you!!
