Every bite of this delicious snack is crunchy crunchy crunchy. It's an awesome idea to serve at parties, lunch box snacks for the kids, and even a yummy afternoon sweet treat. 

All coated with butter or vegan butter and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. You’ll want to grab handfuls of this crunchy snack mix and just munch. It’s insanely addictive.

While you could buy a bag of Chex Mix and pass on making your own, I wouldn’t recommend this. You would be missing out on the fun of creating your own delicious masterpiece that you bake fresh in your own oven. You don’t even have to follow my directions "to a t." The beauty of this snack mix is that you can add in or substitute any of the crunchy ingredients. Don’t like peanuts? Leave them out or substitute with almonds or cashews. Want a little chocolate added? Throw in some M&M’s when it’s all cool. And, there are tons of Chex Cereal to choose from. Use your favorite flavor or blend a few types together.

A fun way to serve this party mix is to purchase natural wood cones from Amazon along with a cone holder. I guarantee this will be a hit treat at your next friendly gathering.

This recipe makes a lot of party mix. If you aren’t going to use it all, don’t be afraid of bagging it up and throwing it in the freezer. This is what I did with the mix I made for this blog post. It’s making a great snack for my little guy’s lunch box and as an afternoon sweet snack for my family.
