Love this? Share it!

I can always use another snack recipe in my arsenal, especially around the holidays! Between potluck dinners and Christmas parties I’m always trying to think of something to bring besides my usual “chip-and-dip”! And dip = store bought salsa, just FYI. This Sugar Cookie Chex Mix recipe, however, might be my new go-to!

It’s easy (takes just minutes to prepare!), it’s delicious, and you could easily add your own spin on it by throwing in some nuts, pretzels, M&Ms, whatever you’d like!

6. Pour warm cereal into a large bag (I used a crock pot liner) and add powdered sugar. Shake to coat evenly. Make sure you do this pretty quickly after you remove the cereal from the microwave so the powdered sugar will stick!
