Red Velvet Chex Party Mix Recipe #ChexPartyMix

For Valentine’s Day I wanted to make a quick but delicious treat for my family. One family favorite are the Chex party mixes so I though a Valentine’s Day inspired version would be perfect.

I was really excited to recreate the Red Velvet Chex Party Mix and went to the supermarket to pick up the items. Ironically my supermarket didn't have the Chocolate Chex® cereal. Matter of fact none of the 3 supermarkets in my area had it. How was the even possible?!

Since I couldn't find the Chocolate Chex cereal, I decided to substitute with the Honey Nut Chex. Nothing wrong with a little experimenting right?

After getting my items I returned home to start making the Red Velvet Chex Party Mix. As I take out all the ingredients, my son decided to be my "helper". This would have been a nice idea if his version of "helping" didn't mean eating out the Chex cereal!

After giving him some cereal to enjoy. I quickly started making the recipe with the rest of the cereal.

For some reason my version of the Red Velvet Chex® Party Mix didn't come out exactly like the recipe showed. But it was still a fun treat to make. As soon as I find Chocolate Chex® cereal, I'm going to try making this recipe again.
