If there is one snack food that I can remember always being around during the holidays ever since I was a little girl, it’s definitely Chex Mix. Not only does it make a great party snack, but it also make a great food gift!
This year, Sam’s Club and Chex wants to provide one of my lucky readers with everything they need to host their own Chex Party Mix-change. Think of the classic cookie exchange with a twist! Grab some friends and family (you can invite them using these awesome printable invitations). Next, print off some of these mouth-watering recipe cards. Finally, print off this handy shopping list for everything you’ll need to make some amazing Chex Mix snacks.
• Set up a special table to keep all the Chex® Party Mixes on. Have cards and pens handy to label the mixes with.
• Create a “mix it up” bar with sparkling water, fruit juices and other beverages for guests to
create their own special blends.
• Have Chex® Party Mix recipe cards on hand for guests to take home and enjoy.
• Take pictures at the party and create memory books as gifts you can send to friends and
• Buy large gift bags for guests to carry home all their Chex® Party Mixes in.
• A great way to help the community is to ask guests to bring an extra box of Chex® for the local food shelter or pantry.
• Don’t limit yourself to evening parties. Mix it up with a lunch hour party or an after-work
“happy hour” Mix-Change. Breakfasts can also be great as guests get a fun start and then have the rest of the day for other holiday activities.
• Get fun and festive with the packaging. Some simple ideas to try:
- Chinese takeout containers
- Party hats
- Cellophane bags
- Cupcake liners in decorative boxes
