Chex Party Mix Exchange Giveway!

I have a giveaway for you and it includes free snacks! It's called the Chex Party Mix-Change. I unfortunately didn't have time to have people over with the holidays. But it would be an awesome idea for a blustery winter day in January when everyone has cabin fever and we know that happens! You can win a package to host your own Chex Party Mix-Change by following the rules to enter the giveaway at the end of the post!

I am a chex mix lover and my mom always makes it around Christmas. When I was contact by My Blog Spark to host a giveaway and make a couple different Chex Mixes I knew this was right up my ally.

I always had thought the true way to make Chex Mix was in the oven and it seemed like it was time consuming so I hardly ever did this. When the recipes arrived with my kit there was a 15 minute microwave Chex Mix. I knew I had to try this. It was wonderful. It didn't have my mom's love in it, so it didn't taste quite as good but it was close!

I also made Chex PB & Chocolate Blast. This didn't turn out quite as well. It could very well be handicap that caused this. I couldn't get my peanut butter or white chocolate chips to melt in the microwave. They just turned into a big lump. I switched to chocolate and white almond bark so it was peanut butter anymore, but this worked much better.
