This one is cheap when buy store brands and on sale with coupons, and is great for the holidays. Easy for children to make, you can put together a big bowl and then divide it into pint-size canning jars to give as gifts. This can also be sent to school in a lunchbox, or taken to work for a snack.
white chocolate covered pretzels (homemade may be cheaper)
cheap Christmas candies
dried cranberries (maybe even yogurt covered)
dried mixed berries
- Just mix everything together and place around in bowls at your next celebration.
Note: I know some of these ingredients the healthiest, but I don’t think it is necessarily bad to treat yourself once-in-a-while. You just don’t want to make a habit of it. Many people on my Christmas list might not welcome my new ‘health food’ recipes, but they like things like this.
