Best Chex Mix Recipe:
How do you make holiday Chex mix
Holiday Chex mix is simply a bunch of stuff like bugles, cereal mixes, pretzels, nuts and cheese crackers mixed together with butter and spices, then baked. I added red tortilla chips and pistachios, as well as dill for the festive red and green colors! Although this makes a great Christmas snack mix, you could eat this mix any time of the year!
It also make a great edible gift!
It’s been a long time since I have eaten cereal snack mix out of the bottom of the bowl on a weekend morning, but if I was to do it again, it would definitely be this one. I love the zing of the dry ranch dressing, mixed with lemon pepper, dill and the other spices. But I especially love that it’s festive and purely savory.
So, if you are looking for a holiday snack mix, this one has it all and no sweet stuff!
