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.

  1. Would love to make some of these for Christmas gifts. How long would they last in glass jars? Thanks

    1. Hi Kelly, I think they would keep at least 1 week maybe 2 in a jar, as long as they are sealed tightly.

  2. This is awesome! Going to make this for game day!
