Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix

Now that football season is officially upon us, it’s time for all the game day snacks. Some of my favorites are Caramelized French Onion Dip, Jalapeno Cream Cheese Wontons and Garlic Pepper Chicken Wings. Even though we’ve got our favorites, each football season I like to test out some new recipes to share with you to add some variety to my own game day spread.

This Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix is always a hit around here. My husband adores any kind of snack mix so I knew he would be a fan.  I used some of our favorites that we usually have on hand: pretzels, peanuts, cheese crackers and rice cereal.

Next up I had to try to think of a seasoning that I wanted to coat it all in. Now, I don’t know about you, but there is just something about game day that screams spicy. For that reason, and the fact that Buffalo wings dipped in ranch are also a game day favorite around these parts, I decided to make this a Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix using butter, buffalo wing sauce, garlic, chives and dill.

And you guys, it. is. awesome.
