Chex Party Mix-and a giveaway!

Chex Mix...pretty much the go-to snack food. I can remember being on marching band trips, and when we'd make a 'pit stop'-grabbing Chex Mix and chocolate milk. So WHY did it take me SO long to make some myself??


 It's not hard to make. It's not time consuming. It's easy to share. It's VERY easy to eat! I've got a birthday party coming up that I'm doing the snacks for and here's what I made tonight!

Smokey Sweet Onion Party Mix
1 1/2 cups Rice Chex
1 1/2 cups Corn Chex
1 1/2 cups HoneyNut Chex
1 cup Wheat Chex
1 1/2 cups pretzels
3/4 cup dried minced onions
1/4 cup butter-melted
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp HotSalt
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke


Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl (large enough that you can get a spoon in there and mix it up-and make sure it's ok to microwave in)
Combine the butter, sugar, and oil in a microwave safe cup, and microwave for 2 minutes (stirring after each minute).
Add the seasonings to the wet mixture, then pour over the cereal/pretzel/onion mixture.
Microwave 3 minutes-stirring after each minute.
Then pour onto a wax paper lined sheet to cool.
Once cool package in something air tight to keep it fresh!

It's sweet and it's got a great smoke flavor, then that HotSalt tickles the back of your throat, and...yum, just yum!

Would YOU like to make some of your own? Or try one of the great flavors that Chex Mix has already come up with FOR you?
I'll tell you right now....yes, I did make up the recipe above, but I've got a few of their recipes on my list-like Chex Pumpkin Pie Crunch, and Chex PB and Chocolate Blast I'm drooling thinking about the sweet fix! And I love the concept of doing a Chex Mix exchange instead of a cookie exchange! Chex Mix mixes take about 15 minutes from start to finish....you'd be lucky to have your cookie batter mixed up by then, not even baked! Such a good idea and I can't wait to try it at holiday parties this year!
Make up bags for trick or treat gifts! Have a big ol' bowl sitting around to munch on at Thanksgiving! Or host a Christmas Chex Mix exchange!
An easy-peasy way to get you motivated to start mixing up? A giveaway...
 Thanks to MyBlogSpark you could win a Chex Mix prize pack, full of the stuff you need to have your own Chex Mix party! 5 different varieties of Chex cereal, awesome take away boxes for your guests, and a gift card to help out with other things you might need for your party!

Our favorite is Chex Muddy Buddies. I didn't know they had so many recipes on their site. The Snickerdoodle Chex mix recipe sounds so good!
