Giveaway: Chex Mix and $25 Gift Card

One thing I remember about the holidays when I was growing up was my parent's tradition of making Chex Party Mix for Christmas Eve.  Of course, one recipe was never enough and it seemed like we used boxes and boxes of the cereal in the process.   At the risk of getting my hands smacked,  I loved picking at it when it was warm out of the oven.

Chex is still around with even more exciting recipes that you can prepare in less time (around 15 minutes) with the help of the microwave.  Just today we made Chex Muddy Buddies, AKA Puppy Chow.  It was so easy to make and the girls could really do most of it themselves.  You basically melt chocolate chips and peanut butter, add vanilla and toss onto Rice Chex.  Then you shake it in a bag with confectioner's sugar.  Voila!  I don't think it even took us 15 minutes. You can find the recipe HERE.  Let me warn you, though, this stuff is HIGHLY addictive.

Here is another interesting recipe--Chex Ginger-Honey Crunch.  It is filled with all sorts of healthy stuff, almonds, dried banana chips, dried cranberries, etc.

Want to try some Chex Mixes for yourself for free?  Then enter my giveaway:
