Host A Chex Mix Party

I love a reason to get together with friends. I love the planning, the decorating, the executing and those sweet, wonderful friend conversations. Recently,  I hosted a Chex Party Mix-change for my church friends.  The Chex Mix-change is a new twist on the cookie exchange.  So fun!

We had 14 different variations of Chex mix. Seriously!!

Even Loaded Baked Potato Chex Mix!

I made a bunch of cute party food labels {tutorial here} for each Chex Mix variety!

The Pumpkin Pie Chex Mix is my favorite. I will definitely be making more for the holidays! The recipe calls for Wheat Chex, but I just used an extra cup of Cinnamon Chex and Honey Nut Chex to substitute.

I bought a pack of cute Fall plates from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon.

Everyone brought their recipes and I had a pack of index cards and pens, so recipes could be exchanged as well.

Conversations were riveting.  🙂

We tasted, divided and laughed. Oh, how we laughed!

We used sandwich bags as well as treat bags with ribbon to divide up the Chex mixes.

I brought along things to package and decorate.

How cute is this?!  We had so much fun!

  1. I must admit I have never tried all the different recipes for Chex Mix. I like the traditional. Cranberry caramel and the pumpkin are on my to make list.

  2. My favorite is the orginial but I have not had many other kinds. I am looking forward to making the pumpkin pie version, sounds yummy.

  3. I haven’t made all the other yummy sounding flavors (but will have to now, LOL) I do love the traditional. It is sooo addicting.

  4. Oh, this is a great idea. There is a mix that you melt white choc. on. Can’t think of what its called, but its addicting. Would love to try this with my friends.

  5. Love the Muddy Buddies! I also made the Halloween Chex Mix last weekend and it was a huge hit! Love your website!

  6. I love Puppy Chow and the Classic Chex Mix. And I am SO going to copy your party idea!! That would be so fun!

  7. We love Chex Mix at our house. I only buy it during the holidays, so my crew is counting down the days!

  8. My son just had some Chex for breakfast. He likes the honey, but rice is my favorite. This would be something fun to do with our Mom’s Group.

  9. I make huge bowls of Chex Mix all holiday season long. Love, love, LOVE this idea!! The Cinnamon Chex is my favorite, followed closely by Rice, then by Corn……… 🙂

  10. I make huge bowls of Chex Mix all holiday season long. Love, love, LOVE this idea! Our favorite is (what we call) Candied Chex…don’t have a clue what the real name is! White chocolate, Christmas colored m&ms, pretzels & rice chex..with almonds thrown in occasionally. YUM

  11. What a fun idea! I love chex mix and make it quite often, but have never tried any recipe other than the traditional. All the flavors sound good to me – especially the cajun one. Thanks!

  12. I love Puppy Chow! But what I really love is that Chex has so many gluten free varieties that I can feed my kid with celiac disease. We would have a blast with this!

  13. I only recently found your site and check it every day to see what you are doing! I come from a long line of snackers and a Chex Mix Party sounds great! Something for everyone – sweet, salty, spicy, savory!! Hmm… wonder which one should I start off with?!!

  14. Wonderful Idea. I have never made a mix myself. I usually buy the pre-made but I am curious to taste the Pumkin Pie.

  15. White Chocolate Chex Mix is a holiday tradition here. I don’t make it, my friend does, but all 4 of my boys anxiously wait for delivery day! I am excited to try some of the abover recipes and deliver a batch to her!

  16. My son loves to eat just plain Chex (he’s 3)! I don’t even know what kind is my favorite – I do love me some puppy chow! It’d be fun to try new kinds.

  17. I LOVE Wheat Chex Mix! Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Chex Mix!!

    Myra – thanks for sharing your “Pumpkin Pie Mix”.


  18. Chex Mix is my favorite snack. I have never even seen all these flavors. The toffee one sounds divine. T hanks for a cool idea.

  21. WOW! What fun this sounds like?! I’ve only had the original — and, of course, my mom makes it THE BEST; but after just skimming over some of the recipes on Chex website, I’m kind of seeing several that can become new favorites. First ones on the list would have to be the chocolate coffee toffee chex mix & loaded baked potato chex mix!! Sounds yummy!

  23. I love ALL of the Chex Cereals…We make Trash..Chex, peanuts, m&m’s, and pretzesl covered in white chocolate!

  25. Tried the pumpkin pie version last year and loved it! Looking forward to the loaded baked potato now – yum!

  26. Loved this party idea. Thank you for sharing it with us. It is a great idea for my bible study gals. Also want to make up the many recipes for Christmas. Who wouldn’t want an assortment of goodies? I have been a fan of the original mix for years and make it often. My grandson and I tried the recipe calling for the powdered sugar coating. It is so messy to eat, but yummy. He likes to make it himself then take it to school. (know his teachers will be glad we now have an alternative offering.

  27. This will be a great idea to do with the cubs scouts the kids will love it and the parents too, thank you!

  29. I haven’t tried any of the other flavors, yet. I really like the traditional, though… 🙂 Would love to win this!

  30. Since I am a grandma and like all things traditional, I would have to say that my favorite chex mix is the old traditional one. However, my grandgirls have convinced me that reindeer mix is also very good. I cannot wait to try out the pumpkin pie mix! Love your blog, BTW!

  31. There are three Chex mixes that make my favorite list: pumpkin pie, cranberry caramel, and the hot cocoa! LOL. I’ve narrowed down my choice to the cranberry caramel Chex mix. 🙂 Having the chance to have my own Chex mix party would be awesome because I would totally do this with the young women from my church youth group (my husband and I, both assist).

  32. I’ve narrowed down my choice to the Cranberry Caramel Chex mix. 🙂 I’m thinking that I will host a Chex mix party with the young women from the youth group at my church. The blessings will be great… fellowship and eating different Chex mix. 🙂

  58. The Pumpkin Pie sounds so delish!! Want to try that this Fall! I have only had the original chex mix so far. i recently came across a Chex Mix recipe which i am definetely going to make soon called “Nutella Puppy Chow”, since my family loves Nutella!

  65. oh I hope I’m not too late! I was looking to do something new this year as I just got a call to let me know that “they” wanted something different this year instead of our annual cookie swap. I love puppy chow or white trash mix! I never dreamed of a chex mix party. How clever!

  66. A party is a wonderful occasion to get together with friends. It is also very important to think over the menu and entertainment program so that no one is bored. I strongly advise you to supplement the entertainment with this , it will add a spark to your holiday
