Planning a family movie night? At our house, we have at least one a week and the best part is always the snacks! The usual menu includes popcorn, chips and salsa – but sometimes we like to switch it up with a fun new treat.

Last Saturday, we tried this sweet and spicy Chex® Mix recipe and it was such a hit! The almonds and cashews combined with the yogurt covered raisins for a crunchy and delicious swirl of flavors. Everyone loved it!
