2 Chex Mix Recipes for the Holidays
Chex Mix is a popular treat for parties, snacks, or even to pack in school lunches. In our home, we like to cozy up with chex mix and a fuzzy blanket and watch Hallmark Christmas movies. No matter when you serve it, it’s sure to please your taste buds. And, we love chex mix because it can be totally customized to your liking- add more nuts, more cereal, chocolate chips, etc. The possibilities are endless!
