To make either one, mix the ingredients in a bowl so everything is evenly distributed. Then, grab a spoon and scoop the mix into a cute jar or bag. It makes a fun gift for the holidays or a delicious snack for you to bring to work, school, or on-the-go. They're also cute enough to have out on display as treats during a holiday party or gathering! Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps are a holiday must-have because they're a "better for you snack" that you can do so much with...dip them, eat them plain, or do what we did and use them as the perfect crisp in a snack mix!
