Today, I am going to share with you the most addicting recipe for Chex mix that I have ever tasted.  This stuff is so good.  So make up a big batch to take to a potluck or share with friends and family.

I’ve got an Easter-themed Chex mix recipe today, but it really is perfect for any spring gathering.  Easter peanut butter M&Ms and chickadee cheddar crackers add a colorful, seasonal, pop.

I chose peanut butter M&Ms to make the recipe little-kid friendly (we don’t want them choking on nuts!).  But you can use any type you want.  Also, I used the Target brand of cheddar snack crackers.  Annie’s also makes cheddar crackers that look like little bunnies.

I served up my Easter snack mix in little containers from the dollar store, and it was a total hit.  The sweetness of the chex and coconut combined with the salty cheddar crackers is beyond addicting.  I had to stop myself before I got a tummy ache from over-indulging!

The twins loved this too. They dug around in their little bowls of snack mix, looking for all of the eggs, of course!  Then Miss B went prancing around the house with her dollar store container on her arm.

I hope you enjoy this snack mix as much as my family did!  Enjoy!
