Week 4 Day 2 Fill the Freezer - Chex Mix



Well, I intended to make only 1 recipe. But when I was finished my daughter decided she wanted to make a batch. She wanted to make something chocolate. She is ALL girl. :-)  Then after glancing over the other Chex mix recipes I found a few more I wanted to try.  I ended up making 6 different recipes total. I won't bore you with pictures of ALL the different recipes, but rather a link to recipes we used at the end. How about that?  The amazing thing to me is that I only used up 6 boxes of cereal for all the chex mix. I actually had EVERYTHING on hand to  be able to make the recipes. I love having a stocked pantry!  I did not have wheat chex on hand so I just used Crispix instead. Since I have some gluten issues anyway I just decided to not get the wheat ones. :-)






So here is a list of all the recipes we tried and LOVED today

Apple Pie Chex Mix
Spiced Nut Chex Mix
Chocolate Coffee Chex Mix
Chocolate Chex, Caramel Crunch
Mayan Chocolate Chex Mix
Snickerdoodle Chex Mix




 I have 2 more I want to try yet. I just need to find a few more ingredients.  Mainly pecans and dried pineapple or cranberries. I think I have some in the pantry, but I wasn't able to find it quickly this afternoon.

Ginger-Honey Chex Mix
Pumpkin Pie Crunch Mix
Banana Foster Crunch
Breakfast to go Mix

I wonder if the Breakfast to go Mix is anything like the Emerald's Breakfast to Go?

  1. That chocolate coffee chex mix sounds like Heaven! Where would one find toffee bits?

  2. I think I bought them from Pick N Save or Piggly Wiggly during one of their 10 double coupon days. I don't see them often. I could just eat them as a snack they are so yummy.
