Zesty Ranch Chex Mix

By March 21, 2013 Cooking, Snacks

One of the most loved recipes at Christmas time is my Mother-in-laws Party Mix. Doug and my boys absolutely love it! The savory seasonings and the little bit of sweetness from the cereal is pure perfection!

Another favorite in our house is Ranch dressing. I think we go through more bottles of Ranch than several families put together. So I decided to put our two favorites together!

And the new hit in our house…Zesty Ranch Chex Mix!

This Zesty Ranch Chex Mix is perfect pretty much any time…movie night, game night, while you are watching the College Basketball Tournaments for March Madness, during the holidays, party snacks, and it even makes a great gift too!

I’ve served it up in some fun basketball cupcake liners that I found (these are similar), also making clean up a breeze! I just kept refilling my cupcake liner- I could not get enough of how good this stuff was!

What do you add to  your Chex Mix? I am thinking about adding pretzels for the next time- just to add a little bit of of extra salty and a different texture to the mix! There are so many options for this great snack! And change out the cupcake liners to fit any theme!
