Chex Mix of the Month

Between “Mom, what can I have for a snack?” and needing to pack a snack for school each day, I came up with twelve months of Chex mixes. These are all just-mix Chex mixes which means they require no melting, microwaving, or baking. Just mix, that’s it. Each month has about four ingredients to give the snack a variety of flavors and textures.


During my year of making these, I kept a big jar on the kitchen counter and scooped some into snack baggies for my kid, his play date friends - or anyone hungry in my house. Hope you enjoy them!

I tried to include a nut or fruit source with each mix though not always possible with the theme. These are not the healthiest mixes... so feel free to swap in healthier items.


What do you think your favorite mix will be? In our family, my favorite was January, Mark's favorite was November, and Luke's favorite was June. Though all of us are suckers for candy corn so October is hard to beat!


They're actually all hard to beat and here's a warning not to take the jar to the couch late at night to binge watch your favorite show... ;)
