Our family, on my husband's side, is obsessed and I mean OBSESSED with our Aunt Lena's Party Mix. It is a hot commodity for Fisher family gatherings. We will sneak into another room, hide the party mix from others, and devour cup-fulls of the stuff. It is not a party without it. We fight over it. We now have family auctions during Christmas time (instead of doing a traditional gift exchange) and Aunt Lena's Party Mix goes for about $50 a container. It's THAT good. This past year she had to make two containers to auction off plus additional for us to eat there on the spot. We just love love love this party mix. You could drop it on the floor and people would still eat it, it's THAT good.
We were deciding what to send my brother-in-law Josh, who is away at college, and we thought party mix would be the perfect addition to our package of baked goods. I was so excited to know that my sister-in-law had the recipe in her possession. (I just assumed Aunt Lena NEVER gave the recipe away). I came over last weekend and we whipped up a huge roaster-full of awesome party mix. Don't worry I made sure to save some for myself.
It was an honor and a privilege to be able to make this sacred Aunt Lena Party Mix recipe. Just ask the family, I was pretty excited about it.
Now, I hate to disappoint my faithful readers but I will not be sharing the recipe with you guys. It's a family secret! There is loyalty here. If you want it, you'll just have to ask Aunt Lena yourself.
