Slow-Cooker Pumpkin Harvest Chex Mix®

Snacks are hard to keep in the house. If your kids are like mine, they get “bored” with the same ole treats all the time. Since we are out of school this week, I wanted to find something that we could do together, to keep their little hands busy. Better to be busy in the kitchen than destroying a clean house! We made our list of needed ingredients, headed off to the Commissary, and I let them do it all! From getting the items needed to mix the ingredients together. We had a fabulous time working together!

Y’all, this treat is YUMMY!! Check it out today, and make some this weekend! You are going to love this fall-flavored delicacy!

This was so easy to put together! I let the kiddos help me get it ready. We were so excited to get it going, and then, of course, to eat it, that I forgot to grab pictures! Those faces were so happy with what they had put together, and it was gone quickly! We shared some with neighbors and friends. If you are looking for some great ideas to send to those who are deployed, you can make this delicious treat, seal in an air-tight container, and then mail off! Your Servicemembers will thank you!!
