Remember to use paint specifically for glass so it can be cured to make it permanent

  • Place all ingredients in a bowl, adjusting amounts and proportions to your taste. Toss together and pack into jars

    Thanks for the tutorial on painting the jar, Jenna, and for the easy snack mix. Your baby “wild thing” is adorable!!!!

    What a good way to recycle a jar! I love snack mixes–I made a dried fruit and nut mix with chocolate pretzels to take with us on our yard sale trip. Healthy and yummy. I’ll have to find some of those sesame sticks…I’ve never tried them before.

  4. I love this, creative and wonderful idea!

  5. Jenna, Great idea! I can see this being served in the martini glasses at a party too.

    You are talking my language when it’s easy/lazy! And this sounds delish!!! It would also work with the suggestions my nutritionist gave me for weight loss as long as I don’t sit with that pretty jar in my lap!!!

  7. Love the leopard touches! And the mix sounds like a delicious combination! …and I’m all about easy! LOL! 🙂 ~Rhonda

    I’m WILD about your painted jar and oversized martini glass! I make a similar mix for my hubby to take on his spring and fall fishing trips but add dried cherries. He like the honey roasted sesame sticks but they’re harder and harder to find 🙂

    Your jar is so cute! I’m sure your wild snacks will disappear quickly. I haven’t thought of adding peanut butter pretzels to my snack mix. Yum! Thanks for sharing.
