The 4th of July is just around the corner.
So if you’re going to be entertaining a crowd as you celebrate all things red, white and blue, you should totally try this Red White and Blue Chex Mix
It’s everything you love about the classy salty and sweet Chex mix. But for an extra sweet and colorful twist, we have drizzled the entire mixture with colored melted white chocolate. It’s extra patriotic, extra delicious, and extra easy to make!
Here’s the how to:
First, begin with the rock star ingredient -- Chex Mix! Whip up a batch of your favorite Chex mix, either using the traditional ingredients or whatever extras you would like to throw into the mix. For a sweeter version, I included some mini marshmallows and M&Ms this time. Divide the prepared Chex mix into three even batches, and spread each batch out on a foil-covered plate or baking sheet.
Then melt 1 pound of white almond bark in the microwave or a double boiler. Portion the melted chocolate into three even batches, then stir some red and blue gel food coloring into two of the batches, leaving the third plain (white). Add enough food coloring so that the chocolate reaches your desired level of vibrancy. Then drizzle it with a fork onto the prepared Chex mix.
Red, white and blue, baby!
After the chocolate has returned to room temperature and is set, gently break up the pieces of Chex mix, and then gently toss them together in a large bowl until combined. Portion out into smaller serving bowls if desired. And if you want to get fancy, you can serve this with real live sparklers. Or if you’re iffy about sparks, you can even serve with these cute firework toppers from Wilton.
However you serve it, this salty and sweet treat will have everyone celebrating all things red, white and blue! Ali loves music and fun food!
