Santa Popcorn Snack Mix is the perfect snack for cold winter nights. This popcorn snack mix comes together quickly but packs a yummy sweet punch. We also have a free printable tag for easy gifting.
If I had to choose a favorite snack, it would be popcorn. There are so many ways to make it, drenched in butter and salt, soft and gooey caramel, even cheddar cheese for a more savory flavor. It’s gotta be the best snack out there.
Popcorn is one reason I love this Santa Popcorn Snack Mix so much! Not only does it have popcorn, hence the title, but it also has pretzels and Peanut M&M’s for an added treat.
Of course I love to make this Santa Popcorn Snack Mix for our family to enjoy, but it also makes a super great neighbor or friend gift.

This popcorn snack mix recipe is one of my favorites because it has Peanut M&M’s. I love the crunch from a Peanut M&M. You could use a your favorite M&M flavor, but this one has my heart.
I also love having the pretzels added in. They have that sweet and salty flavor with the white chocolate drizzle on them. So good I tell ya.
Once you have your Santa Popcorn Snack Mix made, you are ready to gift it.
