What says “Happy Holidays” more than Chex Mix?
The holiday season is often the only time of year I have any type of Chex mix, but I want to change that!
Thanks to MyBlogSpark, Chex, and Kroger, I received a holiday Chex prize pack (including two boxes of Chex and a $25 gift card to Kroger for additional ingredients) to try out some festive holiday recipes and find new ways to use Chex cereal all year round.
My favorite Chex Mix recipes have always been the classic and puppy chow. I honestly haven’t tried any other variations, so this weekend, I decided to try a new recipe.
With a full day of football on Saturday and some nasty winter weather, it was the perfect day to make snacks and enjoy them during the games.
The Big Game Chex Mix. It seemed fitting to have during the ACC Championship Game (Go Hokies!), and I love those honey mustard pretzels so I knew we would enjoy this one.
I didn’t have the smoked almonds, so I used roasted/salted cashews instead and I halved the entire recipe.
It still turned out delicious – crunchy, tangy and the perfect football-watching food.
And the best part?
I made this in less than 15 minutes AND I made it in the microwave! No oven required – just a few stops to stir and that was it. Easy!
