Forget the cookie exchange, host a Chex Party Mix-Change! Don’t get me wrong I love cookies, but how about trying something new this year? This is a great idea for a cocktail party, because we all love snacking while enjoying a cocktail. The cool part is there’s so many different ways you can go with this idea from sweet to savory.

Usually my mom makes my hubby a batch of the original mix every year. He loves hers better then mine and I do the same recipe! It’s very addicting.

I love that they have several ideas on the back of their box too!


I tried the Hot Buttered Yum recipe for part of my gift baskets. The only part I messed up was instead of just tossing in the marshmallows I kept stirring until they where melted. You have to break them up if you do that, but otherwise this tasted exactly like the drink!

Hot Buttered Yum Chex® Mix
