Holiday Chex Mix Recipes

Chex® Mix has long been our go-to snack to serve at any gathering. I have fond memories of snacking on it every Christmas Eve when we would go visit family friends. This year, Chex® Mix is receiving a makeover and they’re come up with some pretty unique recipes.

After surveying the country to learn more about Americans’ favorite holiday cookies, chefs in the Betty Crocker® Kitchens have created Chex® Party Mix versions that bring holiday cookie flavors to life in these 15-minute recipes.

Sugar Cookie Chex® Party Mix: Add sugar, butter and vanilla to Chex® cereal. Give it a quick stir in the microwave, sprinkle with colored sugars, and you’ve got the taste of a sugar cookie in just 15-minutes! Gluten free!

Peanut Butter Blossoms Chex® Mix: Milk chocolate and peanut butter morsels combined with Chex® cereal give this easy recipe a taste of chocolate and peanut butter in each crunchy bite. Gluten free.

Gingerbread Chex® Mix: The combination of molasses, ground cinnamon, cinnamon candy, Chex® cereal and ground ginger make this the easiest, most gingery gingerbread recipe yet.

Sweet Pecan Chex® Mix: Sweeten the pot! Butter, sugar, vanilla and maple syrup give pecans and Chex® cereal an irresistibly sweet coating. Gluten free.

Iced Pumpkin Chex® Mix: Right down to the rich, white chocolate, cream cheese icing on top, your favorite fall dessert recipe is now a quick and easy snack mix.

    My favorite is “white trash” or, what I more politely call, “white chocolate crunch.”

    I mix together 1 box of corn Chex and 1 box of rice Chex with 1 pound of M&Ms, 1 bag of pretzel twists and 1/2 box of raisins.

    Then I melt white chocolate (about a pound of chocolate to two boxes of cereal) over a double boiler and pour the melted chocolate over the Chex mix. Toss gently to coat, then spread on wax-paper lined baking sheets and place in the fridge to cool.

    When cool, I break the pieces apart and toss them in confectioner’s sugar (my kids tell me that way the white chocolate doesn’t stick to their fingers).

    No gluten, no nuts. But, alas, I still can’t eat it due to a dairy sensitivity and I have yet to find a non-dairy white chocolate substitute. Oh well, it’s still a pleasure to make and serve to friends, and it’s a huge hit at bake sales when packaged in little bags and tied with ribbon.
