Have you ever had a Chex mix you didn't love? We don't think we have! Sometimes they are sweet, sometimes salty, but they are always delicious.
We have been making our Coconut Cereal Treats for years, and still think it is pretty amazing. The mixture of Corn Chex cereal, cinnamon, almonds, and coconut is hard to beat! But we decided we wanted to mix things up a little bit with a new chocolate version.
And what better time to try our new Chocolate Chex Party Mix than at the start of the Holidays? This is the perfect treat to bring to all your Holiday parties. All of your family and friends will love it.
The best thing about this dessert is you can get all the ingredients at your local Kroger store. True to our philosophy, this recipe doesn't use a ton of obscure ingredients. You can even use Rice Chex in place of Corn Chex if you would like to! We like to keep things simple, inexpensive, and most of all delicious. Just head to Kroger, and you will be all taken care of!
After trying Chocolate Chex, I knew I wanted to come up with something extra chocolatey. The chocolate covered almonds are the perfect addition. When you add these to the warm mix, the chocolate melts off the almonds and its amazing. It creates the perfect texture! And adding in the Corn Chex keeps the chocolate from being too overpowering.
And we know that nuts can be a little dangerous to bring to a party, so feel free to leave the almonds out. The mix won't be quite as perfect, but it will still be delicious.
Since coming up with this recipe, I have been making it on repeat at my house! My kids are obsessed, and request it multiple times a week! Its becoming a regular after school snack around these parts. So what are you waiting for? Head to the closest Kroger store near you, give this new Chex mix a try, and tell us what you think!
