A New Spin on the Cookie Exchange! Wanna Host a Chex Party Mix-Change

Are you ready for a great new way to prepare for the holidays? Chex Party Mix is mixing it up with a fresh idea that puts a whole new spin on the classic cookie exchange. Ditch the hours of baking and make 15 minute Chex Party Mix recipes instead - all you need is a microwave and some friends to stir up the fun.

I decided to make this for Our Thanksgiving Dinner. We had a house of 20 people so what better time then to have everyone give them a try. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the two different kinds we made. Both adults and kids were both going back for more and I have since emailed the recipes to 4 of the people that were here that night. My daughter has even requested that we make these for her slumber party coming up in a week. So instead of decorating cookies I am gonna let the girls all make what ever kind they like and then have them take some home to share with there family.

With the holiday here why not get some people together to make some of this great chex mix. The concept is simple - invite some friends over for a party and ask everyone to make enough of their favorite Chex Party Mix recipe to exchange with party guests. Taste, mix, swap, and share the recipes, putting the treats in easy DIY packages

Here  are five Chex Party Mix recipes that are just some of the fabulous 15 minute recipes that can be found at
