Sweet and Salty Snack Mix

  • Prep Time: 10 m
  • Cook Time: 12 m
  • Total Time: 22 m
  • Servings:


  • ½ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sesame sticks
  • 1 cup pepitas pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cups granola
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 2 cups crispy corn puff cereal Kix or Corn Pops
  • 2 cup mini pretzel crisps


  1. Combine the honey, butter, and salt. Stir until combined.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sesame sticks, pepitas, granola, cashews, corn puff cereal, and pretzel crisps. Pour the honey mixture over the top and toss to combine.
  3. Preheat air fryer to 370ºF.
  4. Air fry the snack mix in two batches. Place half the mixture in the air fryer basket and air-fry for 10 to12 minutes, or until the snack mix is lightly toasted. Toss the basket several times throughout the process so that it cooks evenly and doesn’t get too dark on top.
  5. Transfer the snack mix to a cookie sheet and let it cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to one week, or package in gift bags with tags and ribbons for holiday gift giving.
