Be Snacksational with Chex Mix® Snack Recipe
Chex Mix snack recipe from my Eating Well to Fight Arthritis cookbook is just the ticket! Looking for the perfect after-school snack? Kids of all ages will love to dig in to this salty and sweet combo, and you will find yourself grabbing a handful throughout the day – as this Snack Mix is so addicting! Subtlety sweet and low sugar, you can even get the kids in on helping cook up this healthy treat. Fortified cereals actually provide a host of nutrients including calcium, iron, fiber, folic acid, and vitamins C, B, and A.
My favorite and most popular Chex Mix snack recipe is one the whole family will adore.
A little salty with some sweet is a flavor combination sure to please. Besides making a great snack, you can also split the mix up in smaller festive holiday containers for hostess gifts, neighbors, teachers, and even your mailman. I love to use seasonal chocolate candies for the different holidays making the Chex Mix snack recipe extra festive! You can always leave out the chocolate candy and add dried cranberries if you prefer – or just make it without either, be creative! This is one of those recipes that is so easy to whip up and half the price of the pre-made store mixes.
