Grab the kids, it’s time to whip up a batch of everyone’s favorite snack mix! And this Sweet Chex Mix Recipe will quickly become everyone’s favorite!
Over the years, the original Chex Mix Recipe sure has changed. My mother-in-law always made buckets and buckets of what she called “party mix” for the holidays. While that recipe is our favorite, there are so many delicious variations.
Family traditions like board game or movie night are my favorites! Even as our boys have grown up, it’s still a time that we all enjoy. Of course, with a house full of men, watching football on Sunday is a must. And having snack mix recipes ready to go makes serving my gang even easier.
This Sweet and Salty Chex Mix Recipe has only 5 ingredients, and in my opinion, the right blend of sweet and salty.
Chex Mix Ingredients
- Rice Chex Cereal
- Cinnamon Chex Cereal
- Mixed Nuts
- Dried Cranberries
- Vanilla Yogurt Raisins
A good mix of all the ingredients and in minutes you have a snack ready for game night, to take on a road trip, or even give as gifts.
Giving homemade gifts for special occasions is something I just love to do and with the holidays coming up quickly this recipe would make a delicious Christmas snack mix. The combination of cinnamon and cranberries in this recipe reminds me of the holidays!
