MyBlogSpark: Chex Mix Review & Giveaway

Okay, it's confession time... I've never had Chex mix.


There, I said it.


But I've always been curious.


I recently had the chance to host a Chex mix "party" where I invited family members over and we holed ourselves up in the kitchen and made a mess. 


And we ate way too much.


Seriously, way too much.


We started out with the goal of making the Caramel-Chocolate Drizzles and the PB and Chocolate Blast mixes.


We had gathered all our ingredients and started out with #1 on the recipe card.


Then we learned that microwaving white vanilla chips is not all that easy.


It is actually a difficult task.


So we scrapped microwaving things and just hit the stove with the double boiler. 


Then somehow we canned making two recipes and merged the two into one.


We made a chocolate, peanut butter, caramel and pb chip Chex mix.




It was heaven.





Everyone was able to take some home and we spent the entire weekend munching on Chex mix.


And I am so glad I've tried Chex mix. It is guaranteed to be on the table at every holiday gathering this season.


Want to make some yummy Chex mix of your own?


I've got a giveaway pack to share with one of you.


The winner will receive:

  • 2 boxes of Chex cereal to create Chex Party Mix recipes
  • 5 featured Chex Party Mix recipes
  • 10 takeout containers so your guests can take their Chex Party Mix to-go
  • $20 gift card to purchase recipe ingredients and decorating supplies
All I need you to do is tell me how you make your Chex mix and if you've never tried it what kind would you make?

Giveaway ends on December 1st at 12 AM EST.

Extra entries can be earned by tweeting out this giveaway, just make sure you @NYTMBlog and add a comment here with your tweet link.

Good Luck!

My husband is a traditionalist and likes the original. The rest of us love the muddy buddy chocolate peanut butter mix and the turtle mix.

I don't think I've ever MADE Chex Mix, but I love it! We're already planning to make some of these varieties this year for Christmas, so this giveaway is perfect! I especially want to try the Pumpkin Pie Crunch!

Thanks so much!
