Snack Mix Recipes

  • I had several requests for the recipes for the snack mixes I posted about the other day. Here they are, enjoy!

  • Snickers Snack Mix

  • 2 cups corn chex
  • 1 cup Rice Chex
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Chex
  • 1 1/2 cups bite size pretzels
  • 1 cup air popped popcorn
  • 1 cup mixed nuts (I used peanuts, cashews, pistachios and pecans)
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup karo syrup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2-3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I like to use all 3 cups)

  1. In a large bowl combine the corn chex, rice chex, whole wheat chex, pretzels, popcorn and nuts. Toss well.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the melted butter, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour the butter mixture over the chex mix and toss well with you hands until the butter and cinnamon has coated all of the chex mix
  3. Add the Karo syrup, peanut butter and brown sugar together in medium saucepan. Heat almost to a boil but be careful not to burn. Stir to combine the ingredients. Once the mixture begins to bubble around the edges, stir for 1 minute and then remove from the heat. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the chex mix and toss well with a spatula.
  4. Spoon the mixture onto cookie sheet
  5. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave or over a double broiler. I like to microwave mine, heating on full power for 20 seconds, stir, 30 seconds again, and stir until melted. Pour over mix and toss till coated. Then toss in 10X sugar
  6. Spread on cookie sheet to dry

Candy Cane Muddy Buddies

5 cups rice Chex cereal
1 bag (10 ounces) Candy Cane Hershey Kisses, melted
1 cup powdered sugar
Add the powdered sugar to a plastic bag.
Put the Chex cereal in a large bowl.
Melt the Candy Cane Hershey Kisses in the microwave for 45 seconds and stir. Microwave another 30 seconds or until it is all the way melted. Stir until smooth
Pour the melted Candy Cane Hershey Kisses over the Chex cereal and mix until the cereal is well coated. Add the cereal to the plastic bag with the powdered sugar mixture and shake until the cereal is completely covered.
Then add the crushed Candy Cane pieces to the bag and shake to coat the muddy buddies
