Kroger and Chex Mix make the season tastier! {giveaway}

Are you a fan of Chex Mix? Then you're in luck! Because from now through Dec. 25th, Kroger has Chex cereal at the lowest prices of the year! And if you check around a little online, you might even find a coupon or two that will make the prices even better!

Chex Mix is a staple for all our get-togethers. I prepared and carried some to an informal get-together just the other night, and would you believe there were FOUR other guests who brought Chex Mix too? Not to mention the hostess also provided Chex Mix. Everyone loves Chex Mix!

And so many delicious ways to prepare it! I'm a fan of the original Chex Mix, but I like to add different ingredients now and then just to spice things up. Like freshly cracked black pepper. Or rough sea salt. Or hot pepper flakes. How about teriyaki sauce instead of Worchestershire? Soy sauce works great too, but be sure to tone down any added salt. Throw in some chopped pecans for a real tastebud pleaser.

If your preference is for sweet stuff, there are countless recipes for that as well. Try Chex Ginger-Honey Crunch or Chex Brittle.

Luckily there are no gluten problems in my household, so Wheat Chex is always in the Mix too. But if you are avoiding gluten, you'll be happy to know that Corn Chex and Rice Chex are both gluten-free.

Check out the many recipes here for lots of ideas on creating your own Chex Mix for the holidays... and for any time you want a delicious, nutritious snack!
