St. Patty's Day Chex Mix

Happy St. Patty's Day, friends!















































I'm spending St. Patty's Day at work, counseling clients, and in class. I'm not even wearing green! 

But I've brought you some St. Patty's Day Chex Mix as a snack to go with all that green beer. 

Don't you just love simple "recipes" that require no cooking, only the microwave? This chex mix snack is the perfect sweet and salty crunchy mix. 







































St. Patty's Day Chex Mix
adapted from Betty Crocker

  • 2 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • cup Corn Chex cereal
  • 3/4 cup broken mini-pretzel twists or sticks
  • 1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1/8 cup green M&Ms

In a large microwavable bowl, place cereals, pretzels and peanuts; set aside.

In a bowl, microwave the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup uncovered on high for about 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until melted and smooth. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.

Microwave uncovered on high 1 to 2 minutes, stirring and scraping bowl every 30 seconds, just until cereal begins to brown. Cool 5 minutes; stir in green M&Ms. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Place in gold foil baking cups to make them Pot O' Gold Chex Mix cups, if desired. Store in airtight container.

*Side note: Have you ever seen the Cap'N Crunch Oops! All Berries cereal? Can someone just make the Oops! All Lucky Charms Marshmallows cereal? Because let's be honest, no one cares about the healthy cheerio-like cereal bits in Lucky Charms. And by no one, I mean me. Sorry if you do. I assume everyone eats like a 5-year old, like me. Give me all the colored marshmallows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Linking up here.

Peace, and bacon grease!

Look up Amish bulk food stores. You may have to make a day trip, but they sell bulk bags of just the lucky charm marshmallows.
