Mardi Gras Muddy Buddies Snack Mix

I’ve always wanted to go to Mardi Gras. New Orleans is so rich in history and culture and I think it would be such a blast to experience something like Mardi Gras that is such an iconic tradition. Until I plan that trip, however, I’ll settle for celebrating it at home.

This fun Mardi Gras Muddy Buddies Snack Mix is a perfect way to get into the Mardi Gras spirit! That whole bunch beads of course…We have something called Gasparilla here in Tampa and beads are a big time part of the parade, so I have a large and in charge collection of them.
