When I was growing up we always had Chex™ cereal around for the holidays to make our traditional muddy buddies.
I look forward to making them every year for Christmas.
The discovery of this Sugar Cookie Chex™ Party Mix threatens to become the new favorite!
Sweet, crunchy and festive this is another one of those snack mixes that kids will love to make! And eat. They’re so easy and take only a few minutes using your microwave.
The Chex™ cereal are first coated with a mixture of melted butter, sugar and vanilla then microwaved and coated with confectioners’ sugar.
The cereal is spread out on a baking sheet and drizzled with melted white chocolate and sprinkles. Some of it sticks together so you get little hunks of cereal held together by white chocolate.
Chex party mix makes great edible gifts for kids and adults alike!
Whether planned or as a last-minute gift you can package them in Christmas tins, plastic treat bags tied at the top with a ribbon, glass jars or a Christmas bowl.
Chex party mix is great for potlucks and parties too.
Make some today with your kids and I promise you will start a new tradition!
Memories that last forever.
I’m living proof.
