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.

    Like, oh, you know…white chocolate. Oodles and goodles of it. Yes goodles is a word. Yes, you may lick the spoon.

    Stir. Toss. Mix. Shake your groove thing. Ignore the scritchy scratches of the recipe-sponsoring mouse. It's the holidays. We all deserve a little good cheer and a nice, warm kitchen to hang out in.

    *Special Announcement #1: The Christmas mouse in the Lazy Susan would like to thank you for having a nice,warm kitchen to hang out in and offer the following images of the next four ingredients…*

    1. Coconut

    2. Pecans

    3. Dried Cherries

    4. Dark chocolate candy pieces in Christmas colors

    *Special Announcement #2: Christmas kitchen mice don't know beans about images.*

    Toss your Chex Mix onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Pop it all in the refrigerator. Under no circumstances should you put it on the floor by the Lazy Susan. Just sayin'.

    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.
