With roughly just one month left before we light the shamash, I’m kicking off the Hanukkah season with a very yummy, very American, non-fried food. I know you were probably hoping for something more akin to sparkly fried donuts or latkes made from something we haven’t tried before (although I think latkes have been made out of everything they possibly can…), but I made a party mix. During a pandemic. What was I thinking??
I was thinking that when I saw the little candied candles in the Birthday Party Chex Mix, they were inspired. And of course, they reminded me of Hanukkah. And so I made my own recipe and borrowed the candle idea. If you don’t love those little candles, I don’t know what to say.
Anyway, enough of that. You guys, this party mix makes a billion cups of mix. Way more than any self-respecting family of 3 should eat. Especially when latkes and donuts and fritters are also involved. So, we’re turning this pandemic Hanukkah party mix into a wonderful homemade gift that you can send to all your friends and family. And those cute little tags on the jar up there? Yeah, you can have that, too!
