Whether you’re entertaining guests for the big game, or sharing a movie night with the kids – this quick and easy snack mix is sure to be a winner!

While I do love a good party and like to share my entertaining ideas often, hosting doesn’t have to be complicated. That’s why I love this recipe – it’s great for impromptu gatherings (or just a procrastinating hostess!), because whipping it up is simple.

Start with a popped bag of Orville Redenbacher® Movie Theater Butter popcorn. Then, in a large bowl, mix in 2 cups each of cheese crackers, pretzels, and rice cereal squares.

In a separate bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, cayenne, paprika, and garlic powder.

Slowly drizzle the butter mixture over the dry ingredients, stirring continuously to evenly coat.

Then, place on a cookie sheet and bake at 250°F. for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.

I made this table runner using freezer paper from my panty and electrical tape from my husband’s tool chest, then I added numbered stickers I had on hand.Sweet and Spicy Party Mix Recipes | Five Marigolds #ad #AllStarSnackBar

I made varsity pendant labels using a free font called “Allstar” and printing them out on my printer.Sweet and Spicy Party Mix Recipes | Five Marigolds #ad #AllStarSnackBar
