Chex Holiday Recipes & giveaway!

I love Chex cereals. I ate chex when I was a kid, and more recently since both chex and I have become gluten free. I used to love the corn chex when I was younger. I could eat bowls of it.

I'm currently on a cinnamon chex kick. Seriously, that stuff is my motivation to get out of bed for work at 4am. I'll crawl out of my cocoon for good cereal.

I snack on dry honey nut chex when I'm out and about. I've used the chocolate chex as a replacement for rice krispies when I make rice krispy treats.

When I make Chex Mix (using only corn and rice chex, and Glutino pretzels), it hardly ever lasts more than a few days. It's so delicious and not at all hard to make.

Same goes for the classic Muddy Buddies. I have never met anybody who doesn't like puppy chow, and it makes a great little gift wrapped up in a pretty bag or tin.

They even make a pretty sweet gingerbread house roof.

I eat a lot of Chex!

Which is why I was super excited to receive the Chex Holiday Recipes gift pack from Chex and Kroger via My Blog Spark.

I'm also excited to offer a giveaway! It includes 2 samples of Chex cereal and a $25 gift card to Kroger. In addition, Kroger is putting Chex cereal on sale from December 2-25th so I can stock up on my cinnamon chex. Er, I mean, so we can entertain and create tasty, gluten free snacks and/or gifts for not a lot of money!

So what did I do with my samples?
I made some muddy buddies for the holiday snacking-age.

My dad really loves this stuff, and he's not much into sweets.

This time I also tried something different- I wanted to make a crispy coating on chicken nuggets. My camera is malfunctioning, so I'll borrow the picture from the web site. They were very yummy and easy.

There's a whole page of chex recipes on the web site, some gluten free and some that can be easily converted to gluten free.

So much chex! So little time!

To enter for the giveaway (provided by the awesomeness of Chex and Kroger via My Blog Spark), leave a comment sharing your favorite Chex recipe, or which one you'd like to try with your samples!

I love the original Chex Party Mix using the older recipe they had before they reduced the butter. :-) I would probably make Muddy Buddies as I love PB. I don't know why I haven't made them before now. Maybe I'm afraid I'd like them tooo much.
