We’ll concentrate on recipes with Chex mix cereal. There are of course many ways to start a snack mix but today we’ll concentrate on the American standard. Rice and corn Chex cereal are gluten-free and make a great option if you know someone with allergies. And no, I’m not sponsored by Chex.

Puppy chow, muddy buddies, whatever name you give this delicious mix doesn’t matter. It’s a very sweet mix with butter, chocolate, peanut butter, and powdered sugar. It makes a great snack to give away at Christmas, serve for the Superbowl, a birthday, baby shower or any celebration.

It’s a seaweed and sesame rice seasoning. Apparently, it’s very popular to add to Chex mix in Hawaii. And yes, this is a sweet mix with a little bit of spice.

17- Fritos and sugar, why not? Recipe girl sure makes it work in this sweet Frito Snack Mix.
18- If all those yummy snack mixes seem to be very caloric, it’s because they are! No need to stay completely away though, Averie Cook has a yummy Skinny 100-Calorie Chocolate Peanut Butter Snack Mix recipe for us!
19- If following a recipe is not your style, hop on over to Food 52 where they teach you how to Make Snack Mix Without a Recipe, Savory or Sweet and give you the freedom to create your own.
You can also go check out the Chex website for some of their own recipes. But I think it’s more fun to see what regular folks have come up with. I love to see all the variations and creativity.
