Chex Party Mix
Nothing says holiday snaking quite like Chex Mix. I don't remember a holiday get together without a large bowl to snack on. I've had the opportunity to review a "Chex Holidays Recipes" gift pack that included two boxes of Chex and a $25 gift card from Kroger.
I used my cereal to make regular Chex Mix and plan on making Chex Muddy Buddies. The Muddy Buddies are soooo easy to make and are always a big hit. I have a friend who made them with soy butter and chocolate(not processed around nuts) for her peanut allergy family.
The Muddy Buddy recipe (from Chex box) is as follows:
9 C Chex cereal (any combo you want--I like corn :)
1 C semisweet choc. chips
1/2 C peanut butter
1/4 C butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C powdered sugar
1. measure cereal into large bowl and set aside
2. in 1 qt microwaveable bowl, microwave choc. chips, peanut butter, and margarine on high 1 minute. Microwave additional 30 second increments until mixture can be stirred smooth. Add vanilla. Pour over cereal and stir until evenly coated. Place mixture into 2 gallon storage bag.
3. Add powdered sugar, then seal bag. Shake until well coated, then spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in fridge.
