Win everything you need to make a great Chex Mix. I love baking a Chex party mix as a snack even though I haven’t done so in a long time. I’ve been so busy with the kids but it’s such an easy thing to do so I really have no excuse. I’m sure if I searched in the pantry I would find everything I need to make one. All it is, is Chex Cereal of one kind or use all three varients, then add nuts, pretzels or crackers, butter or oil, salt or garlic powder or both. You can actually use any seasoning you want your party mix to taste like. Visit your local Walmart to find free recipe cards for Chex Lemon Buddies as well as the new Chex Apple Pie Snack Mix and Tex Chex® Party Mix recipes! The blend of flavors in the new homemade mixes will help you create irresistible new favorites and wow your crowd! Here are a few recipes courtesy of Chex Mix.
