Here was their promotion for the event --
From work potluck lunches and holiday cocktail parties, to gifts for
neighbors, friends and colleagues, there are endless occasions during
the holidays where tasty treats come in handy. Chex® Party Mix recipes
offer the perfect quick, easy and delicious snack. And with a wide variety
of flavors, including sweet, savory and salty, there’s a recipe to satisfy
every palate preference. All you need is Chex® cereal, ingenious ingredient
combinations and only 15 minutes in the microwave.

So we got to make three types of Chex Party Mix at the event, and this little statement above was SO TRUE -- all of the mixes were SUPER easy to make (maybe only took 10 minutes, not even 15!), and were SUPER TASTY! We made three kinds -- sugar cookie, Mexican hot chocolate, and pumpkin spice. The sugar cookie one was definitely my favorite, and it's even gluten-free, if you're into that :) These would be such a fun addition to any party or event, and its super low-stress since they are so simple to make. Someone even suggested, since there are recipes online for cookie-related Chex mixes like sugar cookie, caramel cookie crunch, and chocolate macaroon, that it would be fun to have a Chex Party Mix swap instead of a traditional holiday cookie exchange! I thought this would be a fantastic idea, and it would even be easier to make a great batch of Chex Mix than baking all of those cookies!
|Can you guys tell how excited I was to make this?|
|Because I was pretty excited!!!!!!!|
They even had a little wrapping station, so we could take the mixes we made, wrap them up, and then give them out to friends and family. It was awesome. I came home with like 50. It was such a quick and tasty gift, I couldn't refuse! So much easier than trying to deal with plastic wrap and paper plates for traditional holiday treats :)
So I don't really do this often, but this is a sponsored post. But I only chose to do a sponsored post with Chex Party Mix because I really do love the idea, and think that it is delicious! I hope you get a chance to bring a crazy Chex mix to a holiday party this season, because they really are so easy and tasty. Their website (click here) has SO many different recipes, including Cinnamon Cider, Apple Pie, Popcorn-Pretzel Chunk, Caramel Chocolate, Ranch, Black Forest, Cornbread, Red Velvet, Peach Cobbler, and Tiramisu! I'm super partial to the savory Chex mixes, so I think I want to try their Buffalo Chex Mix recipe next!!

I really think you should try this out, so I included the recipe here for the one that I made -- the Sugar Cookie Chex Mix. It really couldn't be easier, and I bet you already have most of the ingredients! Recipe courtesy of Chex Party Mix of course.
