Party Time with Chex Mix and Sam's Club! Ends 12/27/11


Holidays are major snack times for us! You, too? I thought so!

Chex Mix is always a favourite.  And we have a blast mixing up in different ways... extra salty (blame me)... chocolate-y... you name it.

This Christmas and New Year's will be no different. In fact, we've been making it every few days this month. :D

Are you searching for ways to mix up this year´s holiday bash? Then why not host a Chex® Party Mix-Change, a modern spin on the traditional cookie swap with a delicious and savory twist! With several Chex Party Mix recipes that can be made in just 15 minutes and Sam´s Club stores providing you with everything needed to host a fabulous party, there´s no excuse to not call on family and friends for a celebration.

In fact, with all of the extra prep time being saved, you´ll be able to spend more time mingling with your guests this year than working in the kitchen.

How to throw the ultimate Sam´s Club Chex Party Mix-Change:

*Set the date and spread the word. Announce your Chex Party Mix-Change using some of these festive invites.

*Mix it up. Use these mouth-watering Chex recipe cards including Chex Pumpkin Pie Crunch and Hot Buttered Yum Chex Mix and this shopping list to make party prep a snap.

*Share the fun. Use some of these easy tips & tricks to add some extra flare to your party and check out some of the packaging ideas so your guests don´t go home empty handed!

Our favourite right now is the Chex® Caramel Chocolate Drizzles!

Prep Time: 15 min
Start to Finish: 15 min
Makes: 14 servings (1/2 cup each)

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups Corn Chex® cereal
3 cups Rice Chex® cereal
1/2 bag (14-oz size) caramels (about 25)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


PREPARATION DIRECTIONS:

1. In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals.

2. In medium microwavable bowl, microwave caramels, butter and milk uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring after each minute, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over cereals; gently stir until evenly coated.

3. Microwave on High 3 to 4 minutes, stirring after each minute, until just beginning to brown. Spread on waxed paper to cool.

4. In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High about 1 minute or until chocolate can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over snack. Refrigerate until set. Store in airtight container.


RECIPE TIP:
For easy drizzling, spoon the melted chocolate into a small food-storage plastic bag. Snip off one tiny bottom corner and squeeze the chocolate over the cereal mixture.
