We all know that the holidays are all about good food. From pastry-filled breakfasts to dinners that are more like feasts to the mounds of holiday cookies around the house, preparing so much delicious food is also very time consuming. By the time you’ve made your list of ingredients, gone grocery shopping and started cooking, there isn’t much time left in the day to tackle the rest of your to-do list. However, good food doesn’t have to take hours to make — it can take minutes.

Today, we are sharing our favorite sweet and salty snack mix that we munch on all holiday season long — and the recipe takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish. But if you only have 15 minutes and no time to run to the store, you’re going to want to join Walmart+ and start using the membership’s awesome free delivery from your store* option.

With Walmart+ you can let someone else do the shopping for you and then get all of your ingredients and other essentials delivered right to your door. We love turning to Walmart+ when we are in a pinch for time and truly see it as a holiday life-saver.

As for the recipe, you can start by grabbing all of your favorite snacks. Need some ideas? Shop our recommended ingredients below that include everything from chocolate chips and peanuts to pretzels and raisins. Once you have all your ingredients, combine equal parts in a bowl, give it a mix and you’re done. Really, it’s that simple. But if you want to go the extra mile and make your snack mix look festive (or even give it as a gift), you can scoop a cup into a cellophane bag and tie it with a bow. Enjoy!
