Sweet Party Snack Mix

Make this sweet party snack mix for a baby shower and add blue or pink candies for a boy or girl. Or add yellow for a neutral shower.

For your next soiree, make this sweet party snack mix which can be customized to match your decor palette using colorful candies. I made this Chex™ snack mix for the sip and see baby shower a few weeks ago, and added blue Sixlets to match the aqua and gold color scheme. You could use pink candies for a girl, or yellow for a gender neutral shower.

This sweet snack mix would also be a fantastic addition to a kids party, either on the food table or sealed inside favor bags. I placed a small favor box at each place setting for the shower, and it added a decorative touch as well as a snack the guests could pick up and carry with them as they socialize.

The recipe is a twist on the classic Chex™ Muddy Buddies recipe and it reminds me of the treat my kids made in preschool {so many years ago}. In fact I’m offering a giveaway for a “shower kit” from Chex™, that will get you party ready! See the recipe and Giveaway details below….

Make this yummy sweet chex mix and add colored candies to match your party colors

Sweet Party Snack Mix

  • 9 cups Chex cereal mix {Corn Chex or Rice Chex}
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate baking chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup colorful candies to match your party {I used blue Sixlets}

In a large bowl, measure cereal and set aside.

In a double boiler on the stove, melt white chocolate baking chips, peanut butter, and butter together, stirring occasionally until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract.

Pour mixture over cereal and stir until coated. Transfer into a 2-gallon resealable food storage plastic bag.

Add powdered sugar, seal bag, and shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool.

Once cooled, mix in colorful candies and serve in a large party bowl, or individual serving boxes / bags.

Store in airtight container in the refrigerator.

Make this sweet party snack mix for a baby shower and add blue or pink candies for a boy or girl. Or add yellow for a neutral shower.

This sweet party snack mix is also a great family treat to make any time. One thing I would recommend is to make sure your chocolate coating is nice and thin on the cereal squares. You could also experiment with adding a little “salty” into the mix by using nuts or pretzels too!
