Make ahead, sweet and tangy Lemon Snack Mix is bright and refreshing and coated in a to-live-for White Chocolate Lemon Glaze! This wonderfully easy, texture packed snack mix is destined to become a new go-to party favorite no will be able to stop munching!
Don’t you just love a good snack mix? (like my Italian Parmesan Party Mix HERE) No matter the combo of pretzels, peanuts, chex cereal, etc., there is just something magical about all those contrasting textures crunching together in one bite. You almost don’t even need to add any extra flavovring to that big bowl of texture and it would still be hard to stay away. But of course, we always are going to make things better here at Carlsbad Cravings…
Enter this wonderfully addicting Lemon Snack Mix! The light, refreshing sweet and tangy combo is summer in bowl, in a handful, and in your mouth. I love that its SO EASY, doesn’t heat up your kitchen and is make head/stores beautifully so there is no stressing about what to bring or bustling around the kitchen for a last minute snack or appetizer.
This Lemon Snack Mix is a delectable combiation of Crispix cereal (may FAV but may sub rice/corn chex), mini pretzels, Nilla Wafers (may sub graham crackers or animal cookies, and cashews (or peanuts). It reminds me of a cross between a snack mix and muddy buddies because after we mix all of our goodies together, they get smothered in White Chocolate Lemon Glaze followed by powdered sugar. best. thing. ever.
The White Chocolate Lemon Glaze is silky, sweet and slightly tangy and as simple as melting white chocolate, lemon curd, lemon juice, and lemon zest together. If you don’t want to make your own lemon curd (as this only uses 1/4 cup), you can usually find lemon curd next to the jams/jellies at the grocery store in a similar looking jar. It makes this recipe, and is awesome to have on hand for sneaking a spoonful or its delectable on bread, pancakes, crepes, in oatmeal, with berries, as a cake filling, for thumbprint cookies, pre-baked tart shells, and on and on.
After you smother your Lemon Snack Mix with the luscious White Chocolate Lemon Glaze, you stir until all the mix is evenly coated. You can do this in a large bowl, or if the bowl is too tight, feel free to pour the mix onto your baking sheets for more working room. Once coated, we shower with powdered sugar AND lemon gelatin AKA lemon Jell-O for the perfect finishing touch to enchance the wonderfully delicious tangy sweetness.
At this point, the snack mix will be still a little “wet” from the glaze and will need to dry out for at least 30 minutes. As you periodically test for quality control purposes of course.
Lemon Snack Mix. Fresh snd vibrant summer in a bowl! Dig in!
