With everything going on during the holiday season – lots of extra shopping, visits from family, school parties and office luncheons, its great to have some quick and easy snack recipes on hand and I really love this festive Mexican Hot Chocolate Chex Mix recipe. We made a double batch and stored the leftovers in zipper style plastic bags so we could enjoy it for a few days.
The kids had a blast helping make this holiday Chex Mix and of course we all had to taste test it just to make sure it was as good as it looks. Each kid got to help with a step of the simple recipe and they all had a hard time trying to wait for the mix to cool so we could eat some.

- 2 Cups Chocolate Chex cereal
