This past weekend I was a guest at my Niece’s 16th birthday party where something amazing happened. I say amazing because while I love my older sister, I’ve never been a huge fan of her cooking. I prefer to stay on the simple, homestyle side of food while she’s a bit more experimental with her choices. That said, I absolutely LOVED everything she made that afternoon, especially the party mix which I’m about to share with you.
Keep in mind, I don’t really care for cinnamon, I definitely don’t like sunflower seeds, never been a fan of toffee and Chex are well, just bland. But when these ingredients are mixed together, they make one tasty treat that has become a little (okay, a lot) addicting. What started out as a little nibble here and a nibble there turned into several refills and a doggy bag of this scrumptious party mix coming home with me.
I did a quick search online to see if this particular Chex Cereal recipe already had a name but I couldn’t find anything with the same ingredients so I just named it Sweet Toffee Chex Party Mix.
Sweet Toffee Chex Party Mix Recipe
