Spicy Party Mix and Ranch Oyster Crackers

Spicy Party Mix and Ranch Oyster Crackers

This year we decided to leave Santa our Spicy Party Mix and Ranch Oyster Crackers instead of our biscotti.  Even though Santa likes biscotti — a lot! We thought that after snacking all evening on sweets and drinking gallons of hot cocoa he might appreciate the spicy party mix and oyster crackers. 

 We came to this decision after we received a text from Mrs. Claus.  She revealed  that Santa’s suit has become a little tight and, well, when he finally got home last year and landed, he was still flying high from all the sugar. He was so noisy Ho! Ho! Hoing! That he woke up all of the elves and then it was a free-for-all.
