Need a small gift for someone such as a teacher or teacher's helper, or a neighbor?  Here's a sweet and salty holiday snack mix that you can make today.  It's simple.  It's tasty. It's gluten free!
teacher gifts, neighbors, church friends, anyone you may need a small gift for

All you need is a something to package it in.  I suggest mason jars to show of the contents with its festive colors {red cranberries and green pistachios}.  A jar can quickly be dressed up with a cupcake liner on top.  I always have a few leftover after baking.  You can even add a tag with an ingredients list to clarify for allergens.  If you want to avoid nut allergies, just leave the pistachios out; it will still be a sweet treat from your home.

Cranberry Pistachio Snack Mix
1/4 c white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 c butter, melted
6 c Chex cereal {recommend rice}
3/4 c dried cranberries
3/4 c shelled pistachios

Whisk or shake together sugar and cinnamon.  Pour cereal into a large bowl.  Pour half of the butter over the cereal; toss.  Pour remaining butter and stir well to coat cereal.  Sprinkle with half the sugar and cinnamon mix and stir; repeat with remaining sugar mix.  Toss in cranberries and pistachios; toss to combine.  Store in airtight container.  Makes 4 pint size mason jar gifts.
