Movie nights will never be the same. We love popcorn, it’s one of our favourite snacks. However even popcorn can get a little boring after a while. This Sesame Chex Mix will be your new favourite movie night snack. Quick and easy to make, plus totally addictive – so make sure to make a double, triple or quadruple batch.

Kat here! I watch movies, a lot. Which means I also eat a lot of snacks. Most of the time it’s popcorn or roasted nori, but sometimes I need to shake it up a bit. I’ve made sweet snacks, salty snacks and simply tried fresh veggies. But this mix is seriously addictive. Seriously, it could give popcorn a run for its money. If it makes it to the movie that is. Seriously, both Dev and I finished this snack mix before we even completed our full day of recipes.

Gluten free chex mix cereal, sesame sticks, pretzels, rice crackers, roasted peas, nori and sesame seeds – all mixed together and baked with a simple sesame glaze. This quick and easy mix, that comes together with everyday ingredients packs a flavour punch. With a few simple flavourful additions, the glaze works its magic and coats each piece perfectly. All you have to do is mix all the components in a large bowl, heat the glaze ingredients, pour over, mix and bake! Be sure to make a double, triple or even quadruple batch because you’ll eat this up.

Where you can enjoy this snack mix:

  • Movie Night
  • Hiking
  • Work/School Lunch
  • Anytime
  • All the Time

Now that you’ve got a snack, time to pick a movie to watch? If you’re like Devin it’s probably comedy, but if your like Katherine it’s probably horror. So are you more of a Devin or a Katherine?
