Sweet treats are something that I don’t often give a lot of thought to.  As I have stated in the past, I like sweets and all, but if I’m going to have something “bad” for me, 9 times out of 10 I’m reaching for something salty & crunchy.  And when I do, it’s best to keep your hands away from my mouth. You’ve been warned.

However, on that other occasion where I am looking for a hit of something sweet, I want something that isn’t so sweet that it makes my teeth hurt when I bite into it.  That’s one of the many reasons I love snacks like this Wildtree Chai-Spiced Party Mix.  It’s got that crunch that I love, but enough sweetness that satisfies any craving for chocolate.

Oh, and did I mention that the cereal mix is whole grain? And the chocolate used here is from Enjoy Foods brands, which provides alternatives for folks who are looking for dairy, nut- and soy-free options?  And I’m tellin’ ya’, you can’t taste the difference in the chocolate.  Really. I am not kidding. So that makes it better for you in many ways than some of the other versions of this treat out there.

What is particularly great about this twist on a classic party mix is the addition of spiced Chai tea seasonings.  Wildtree’s Chai Tea Mix is certified-organic, GMO-free, and gives you a great option to use the unmistakable flavors of Chai tea in other drinks and recipes.  In this case, the warmth of the cardamom, paired with the unmistakable comfort of the cinnamon make this a super surprise for you or any guest who grabs a handful.

So get your sweet tooth a gift this holiday and make a batch (or three) of this super simple and richly-flavored Wildtree Chai-Spiced Party Mix.  It will disappear quickly, but leave a warm reminder of your generosity and appreciation for all things delicious.

You've seen this snack before, right? Call it Muddy Buddies. Call it Puppy Chow. I just call it "tasty goodness". When the warming spices of Chai are added, it's a combination that can't be beat.

Recipe Notes

Let's face it.  This recipe isn't rocket science, and it's not a new concept. But since I can never leave well enough alone, even with classics like a cereal party mix, I was excited to see Wildtree's take on this holiday snack staple.  It even got me thinking about the variations on this easy treat that are waiting to be tried out.

How about S'mores? Or Peppermint?  What about savory options like Garlic, or Cheese?

Now you're mind is racing, right? You could make these goodies all year long, and feel good about the spices and flavors you're using.  After all, Wildtree products are certified-organic, GMO-free, and have lots of options for those with dietary restrictions.  What's not to love about a snack like that??
