More About This Recipe
  • Say “Merry Chex™ Mix!” with this frosty little snack mix that’s perfect for parties and presents alike. This recipe is brought to you by the little Christmas mouse that is apparently living under my fridge. Tell me it'll go away once I feed it this awesome White Christmas Chex Mix and otherwise ignore its quirky little squeaks. I don't have it in me to do anything more than wish it away. To make this deeelishy Chex™ Mix, you're gonna need just a few really easy-to-nab ingredients, and a pair of headphones. It's the best way to cook while otherwise ignoring said Christmas kitchen mouse. Also, rocking out while cooking? Get on board with it. Start 'er up with Rice Chex™. You can use any of the other Chex™ flavors, but Rice Chex offers such a great, simple flavor, and the light crunch pairs perfectly with all the other goodies we're gonna throw in here. Crack it. Snack it. Nibble away. Dropping a few crumbs on the ground may be appreciated by one Christmas Kitchen Mouse residing in the Lazy Susan. It's a holiday love kind of a thing.
