Holiday Chex Mix Recipe — Create A Holiday Tradition


Chex Mix

Chex Mix made a visit to Salt Lake City a few weeks ago and took over Fashion Place Mall, giving shoppers a chance to try for themselves how easy and tasty their 15 minute recipes are!

It was fun to taste the different recipes that were being made and then to try it out ourselves. I’ll be honest, I’ve NEVER made Chex Party Mix but have always enjoyed eating it at parties.

The set up was very impressive, they had a huge install where you could see with the mirrors, like in a fancy chef Kitchen.
The recipes are extremely easy and most take 15 minutes to make:
