As you can tell by this recipe and my Homemade Chex Mix recipe, chex mix is a great base for a snack. You know those goodies that show up at each of your holiday celebrations? The ones that you say to yourself, “Oh, I’ll just sneak 1 in. Okay maybe 2. Really, I’m going to stop after 3!”
These fall under that category for my family! You even may get away with telling yourself that this is a healthy snack, you know, the cereal?! These are a family favorite and are a popular “cookie” we exchange at Christmas time, as well as the perfect dessert/snack to munch on at a tailgate. The chocolate-nut and chocolate-pretzel combo is especially delicious!
