Chex Party Mix - a giveaway

Last month, there was a deal on Chex cereals at my local store. On a whim, I picked up a box of Cinnamon Chex and a box of Chocolate Chex. I had never tried them before, but recently have found myself enjoying cereals that were cinnamon and chocolate flavors. I must say that I am hooked. They are both really delicious. When I was enjoying a box of the Cinnamon Chex (or was it the Chocolate?), I noticed a recipe on the back of the box for Snickerdoodle Chex Mix, which used both the Cinnamon and the Chocolate Chex Mix. How could I go wrong?

As the holiday season approaches, I find myself with many carry-ins, parties, guests and such. When I am busy, it is nice to have a familiar snack to share. But, familiar can get boring, which is why I like to mix it up. Chex Party Mix is one of the more familiar snacks that are shared at parties. Everyone is familiar with the original, but there are so many variations on Chex Party Mix - both sweet and savory. You can check them out here.

When I went to a Christmas party for my local women's club a few weeks ago, I decided this was the perfect chance to try out the Snickerdoodle Chex Mix. It was a hit. I was glad I made it to share - I was addicted. I kept going back for more. If I had made this for home, I would have been able to eat a lot more. Thankfully, not only was I addicted, so were many others at the party.

I substituted puffcorn (hulless popcorn) for the popcorn in the recipe, but otherwise followed the recipe. (You can find it here.) One woman commented on how the puffcorn reminded her of the Cinnamon Twists that you can get at a certain fast food chain. I think she was right!

I've been wanting to try Chocolate Chex® Caramel Crunch. I'd also like to try making Chex Muddy Buddies with soy butter instead of peanut butter b/c my son is allergic to peanut butter. I tried to get him to try the soy butter but he wouldn't really try it. I think if I put it in a recipe, he'll like it better. (TMI, sorry!)
