This giveaway has now ended. Congratulations, Jen!
A couple weeks ago we got a fun package from MyBlogSpark and Chex challenging us to a Chex Party Mix-Change. Our entire household likes Chex cereal, and their gluten-free cereals are great to have on hand for when family members with gluten allergies are visiting!
Our box came with a five different recipes to try. We invited over a bunch of kids, and set to work. Here our guests admire the cute little take-out containers we were sent, while Emma wonders what is in A’s box (nothing, yet):
We wound up with ten kids aged 7 months to five. All of them (except the 7-month-old) helped pour and mix. Utter pandemonium, but a lot of fun! I had never made Chex Mix before, and I discovered that it’s pretty easy, especially if you do the microwave versions. I was afraid the Chex Mix would be soggy after being microwaved, but we spread it out to cool as instructed, and it was nice and crunchy.
We made the Original Chex Party Mix recipe together, and the kids and I had made some Muddy Buddies in advance for our guests to take home, substituting almond butter for the peanut butter. Emma approved – as did the other kids! It was fun to hear the moms talk about their families’ “secret” recipes.
I’m not sure how much dinner they ate that night, after all that Chex Mix…
