$25 Sam’s Club GC & Chex Cereal Package GivAway!!! #MyBlogSpark!

Searching for ways to mix up this year’s holiday bash? Then why not host a Chex® Party Mix-Change, a modern spin on the traditional cookie swap with a delicious and savory twist! With several Chex Party Mix recipes that can be made in just 15 minutes and Sam’s Club stores providing you with everything needed to host a fabulous party, there’s no excuse to not call on family and friends for a celebration.

In fact, with all of the extra prep time being saved, you’ll be able to spend more time mingling with your guests this year than working in the kitchen.  There are a number of Chex Party Mix recipes that can be made in just 15 minutes!   I was fortunate enough to be provided a $25 Sam’s Club Gift Card and One Large Size Box (contains 1 bag of Rice, Wheat and Corn Chex) of Chex Cereal for review.

Here’s how to plan your Sam’s Club Chex Party Mix-Change
Some of the fun recipes I will be trying this weekend at my Mix-Change!
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Munchies
5 cups Corn Chex® cereal
2 cups pretzel sticks, broken in half
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 bag (11.5 oz) milk chocolate chips (2 cups)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup candy-coated milk chocolate candies

Looking for an a different chocolate variation? Use semisweet chocolate chips or white vanilla baking chips instead of the milk chocolate chips.

  • Cover 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper. In very large bowl, mix cereal and pretzels.
  • In medium microwavable bowl, microwave butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips uncovered on High 45 seconds; stir. Microwave 15 to 45 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Immediately pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated. Spread evenly on cookie sheets. Refrigerate uncovered about 20 minutes or until set.
  • Break into bite-size pieces. Divide mixture evenly into 2 resealable 1-gallon food-storage plastic bags. Add 1/2 cup powdered sugar to each bag. Seal and shake each bag until well coated. Add 1/2 cup candies to each bag. Seal and gently shake each bag to mix. Store in sealed bags in refrigerator up to 4 weeks.
