Holiday Chex Mix
This recipe from Chex is incredibly easy and is full of chocolate, mint and lots of great crunch.
It’s a fabulous snack to serve at your holiday parties or get togethers, and it also packages up nicely if you want to give some as a sweet treat. And the best part is that it only takes four ingredients and fifteen minutes to make.
To make this recipe you start with both Chocolate Chex cereal and Corn Chex cereal.
You melt some chocolate chips, or mint chocolate chips, in your microwave and then add them to your cereal, stirring well to coat.
Once they are combined you microwave the mixture for about three minutes, stirring every minute. After that you spread your mixture onto a prepared baking sheet, add your mint chocolate candies such as M&Ms, and let it cool. It’s SO simple. The hardest part is not snacking on it the entire time!
You can serve this in a bowl, in individual cups or for gift giving I’m fond of putting it in a mason jar and topping it with a bow. So cute and easy to give (and eat!).
