This Goldfish Snack Mix is perfect for all of your snacking needs!

Goldfish Snack Mix — those words evoke a party, don’t they?!  We had our first party here at the new house this past weekend.  It was too hot to be outside, so we had 18 adults and 10 little ones all inside, and you know what?  I didn’t stress about it.  Not one bit.

I didn’t turn into psycho Cheryl like I usually do when we entertain.  I channeled my inner Sandy and Kristen and kept myself pretty laid back about the whole thing.  Did I make ALL of the food? heck no, I made my lasagna and Amber’s Creamed Corn (that was AMAZING). 

Steve grilled some burgers and chicken early in the day and let them simmer in a pan of BBQ sauce until the party. 

My mom brought cheese potatoes and baked beans, and a few others brought desserts, and I picked up some cookies and cupcakes from the grocery store. 

I put out a few bowls of chips and popcorn and made a large batch of the most delicious Spicy Ranch Goldfish Snack Mix.

A simple menu that made it very stress-free and allowed time to just enjoy our company!

What Is Spicy Ranch Goldfish Snack Mix?

I usually make Ranch and Dill Oyster Crackers for a party, and I thought about making the homemade Ranch Cheese Crackers, but I wanted to try something different that I could make really quick.

There are tons of snack mixes out there.  We are big fans of Goldfish crackers.  This snack mix is flavored with Ranch dressing mix, dill weed and a bit of Worcestershire, with some pecan halves thrown in for a little change.

It’s incredibly addictive, and makes plenty for a large crowd or party, but could also be easily halved or doubled to suit your needs. You can also use any combination of Goldfish crackers and the mix will be every bit as tasty!

You can find and print the full recipe at the end of this post.

How Can I Customize This Snack Mix?

Like all snack mixes, it’s super easy to change it up and customize the snack mix to your own liking!

  • add pretzels and/or oyster crackers 
  • change up the nuts – peanuts, walnuts whatever kind of nuts or combination that rock your world
  • kick up the spice factor and add bit of cayenne pepper, smoked paprika or any other spicy flavoring that you like
