Chex Holiday Recipes (Chex and Kroger Card Giveaway)

My mom used to make the original Chex Party Mix every year during the Christmas holiday.  I find that stuff so addicting!  I haven't made it in a very, very long time, and I now have two boxes waiting for me to make a batch to inhale.

I was provided with a box of Rice Chex, a box of Corn Chex, and a $25 gift card to Kroger by Blogspark.  Seeing that I haven't done any Christmas baking yet, the timing couldn't be more perfect.  I picked up the remaining ingredients at Kroger and plan to mix up a batch tomorrow afternoon, enlisting the help of my kids.  After all, I'm sure they are going to help eat it!

For 3 weeks, from December 2nd - December 25th, Kroger will offer Chex cereal at their lowest prices of the year!  What a great time to stock up!

*Now closed. Congrats to JC, comment #19.* The good news is you, too, will have an opportunity to receive two boxes of Chex cereal and a $25 gift card to Kroger. There are several ways to enter.  Please leave a comment for each and make sure you give me a way to contact you if you are the winner.

    Our family all enjoys original Chex mix. I like corn Chex for breakfast with milk. It tastes just sweet enough without adding sugar.

    I like Chex Mix, but haven't had it in years. What the boys really love is the 'dog food' stuff their cousins make with Chex, PB and chocolate.

    We love the Chex mix recipe on the box. DS has nut allergies. So, we have to leave the nuts out. We use it as a math lesson too. (If you don't want three cups of X cereal, how much do you put of the other one to still have 9 cups? What time will be when we have to stir again? What time when it is done? etc.) I think we have already made 3 batches since the first of the month.

    I like the rice chex cereal just plain in a bowl of milk. Kind-of boring I know.

    Anyway, I'll try to stop back after I'm on my own computer and facebook, twitter etc. about this giveaway.
