Sweet + Salty Halloween Chex Snack Mix

Halloween Chex Mix Chocolate Bark.

It's time for another festive and fun sweet + salty Chex Snack Mix!
Chex snack mixes are a family favorite, especially around any holiday.
With all of the cute and colorful Halloween candy and sprinkles available right now
I decided to whip up a batch to show you just how easy this Chex snack mix is to make.

You can see the snack mix I made last Halloween here.

Warning - it is addictive! The sweet and salty combination is hard to resist!

Sweet + Salty Halloween Chex Snack Mix

1 bag pretzels
1 bag ready to eat popcorn
1 box Rice Chex Cereal
mini candy corn (I found the mini candy corn at Target)
candy eyeballs, sprinkles, Halloween candy
Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers

Line a large baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil.
Place pretzels, popcorn and Chex cereal onto lined baking sheet. I just eyeball the amount.
Melt white chocolate wafers in a microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and heat another 15 seconds
or so if needed.

Drizzle melted chocolate over mixture and toss to coat.
Sprinkle mini candy corn, sprinkles and candy eyeballs over popcorn mixture.
Drizzle with more melted chocolate if desired.

Let the chocolate harden (about 15 minutes or so) or place baking sheet in the fridge for
a few minutes to speed up the process.

Break into small pieces and try not to eat the entire baking sheet!

Air Fryer Everything Bagel Chicken Nuggets

My nasturtium plant has finally bloomed and it makes me so happy!
I was a little late in the game getting it planted, but now it's finally producing some blooms
and I love adding these peppery tasting editable flowers to my salads. I'm not sure how long
it will last into the fall, but with these warm temperatures we've been having in Virginia,
I hope to get a few more weeks of blooms from it.

Baked Oatmeal Cups

Hey friends!
Any oatmeal fans out there?

Oatmeal is one of my most favorite breakfast foods. It's delicious, hearty and good for you
too! Every few Sundays I bake a batch of these Baked Oatmeal Cups and then freeze them
to enjoy throughout the month. I top them with fresh berries, sliced figs, bananas or Lily's
chocolate chips. They are 3 Weight Watcher Smartpoints each using my recipe.

I'm in denial that summer is almost over. I mean seriously, how is it almost September already?
I guess I can deny it all I want, but days are getting shorter, evenings are cooler and the sound
of a school bus turning around in our cul-de-sac each morning lets me know that I better
kick it in gear and get to the office.

Hello Monday

Several years ago I used to write a post titled Hello Monday where I would share random
photos of my week or favorite things. Well today I'm bringing it back because I've got a
lot of new favorite things lately and I thought you might like them too.

Why I love our Berkey Water Filter System

This post is in partnership with Berkey Filters. As always, all opinions are my own.

A few weeks ago our new neighbors invited us over for drinks and appetizers as a way to
formally introduce themselves and for us to meet a few other new couples close by.
We had the best time talking, eating, drinking and sharing stories.  It's so refreshing to have
neighbors that want to get to know us and who enjoy doing things together from time to time.

At the end of the evening we toured their home and sitting on their kitchen counter in all
it's glory was a Big Berkey water filter system. I'll admit I was a bit jealous.
I had heard such great things about the Berkey water filter system and one was definitely
on my wish list!
