Chex Mix Ideas

 There are so many Chex mix recipes out there, but a few years ago, my mom found this one. It's a lemon white chocolate Chex mix! I've been making variations ever since. It makes a great snack to carry along on pick-nicks, to take to a party, or to work because it doesn't have to be refrigerated, it doesn't melt in hot weather, and the best part about it, it only takes a few minutes to make!

Original recipe makes 12 cups
  • 9 cups Rice Chex® cereal
  • 1 1/4 cups white vanilla baking chips
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 4 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
In 1-quart microwaveable bowl, microwave chips, butter, lemon peel and juice uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; gently shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Store in airtight container

   Of course there are a million variations to this recipe. My very favorite is to substitute the lemon for some peanut butter and add MnM's and pretzles! This makes a great valentines snack with the white Chexs and pink and white MnM's too. And these are just as good with regular milk chocolate.

 Wow, my stomach is growling at me just thinking about it! Let me know in the comments how you like it, and share your favorite Chex recipe with us!
