The holidays can be a fun but busy time of year. We still want to go to parties and entertain our guests while getting ALL of the decorating and shopping done. That’s where this Autumn Butterscotch Snack Mix comes in.
The ingredients for this snack are mixed up in a big bowl and then coated with melted butterscotch chips. Oh butterscotch….how I love you!!!
I’m really getting into the butterscotch lately. Do you like butterscotch? Check out this post for Banana Bread with Butterscotch Chips. Yum!
You may think….eh, nothing exciting about snack mix. Oh, I can assure you that there is my friends! There’s another version of this I made for Valentine’s Day this past year and I could NOT stop eating it. Seriously addictive. I got smart with this one and ate
handful after handful a couple of pieces and sent it over to my daughter’s house. 😜
So umm, let’s do this! Grab an extra large bowl and mix up the cereal, pretzels, peanuts and M & M’s.
Melt the butterscotch chips in a microwave-safe bowl. I use a giant measuring cup. Melt the chips in the microwave on 50% power for 30 second increments, stirring in between, until completely melted.
Pour melted butterscotch into your bowl with the dry mixture. Mix until completely coated with the melted candy.
Divide snack mix between two 9 x 13-inch glass baking dishes sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Let cool. Break up into pieces and serve.

Autumn Butterscotch Snack Mix
Autumn Butterscotch Snack Mix is a delicious sweet and salty mixture of pretzels, peanuts, M & M's candy and cereal topped off with melted butterscotch chips. This snack is perfect around the holiday months when company comes!
- 6 cups Chex cereal corn or rice
- 3 cups Cheerios
- 3 cups small pretzel twists
- 2 cups salted peanuts
- 12 ounces holiday M&M's candy
- 16 ounces butterscotch chips
In an extra large bowl, mix cereals, pretzels, peanuts and M&M's.
Melt butterscotch chips in a microwave-safe bowl (I use a large glass measuring cup) in 30-second increments on 50% power until completely melted. Stir butterscotch between the 30-second increments.
Pour melted butterscotch over dry mixture and mix until completely coated.
Spread mixture between two greased 9 x 13-inch baking dishes.
Let snack mix cool. When cool and dry, break up into pieces and serve. (To speed up the drying speed of the butterscotch, you can refrigerate the snack mix for about 10-15 minutes.)
Snack mix can be stored in an airtight container or sealed plastic storage bag for up to two weeks.
