Springtime Sweet and Salty Chex Mix
Spring has officially sprung and I’m so excited! I always love this time of year because it means I get to spend more time outside enjoying the warm weather, while doing fun activities with the kids like planting flowers. Another activity that I can never pass up is whipping up yummy chex mix dessert recipes like this easy Sweet and Salty Chex Mix with m&m’s.
5-Minute Sweet and Salty Chex Mix
In talking with some friends and family recently, there seems to be a worldwide debate over which chex mix dessert is better. Some people love sweet chex mix recipes drizzled with chocolate, caramel, or tossed in sugar, while others prefer salty chex mix recipes that can be seasoned to perfection with ranch, cheddar, garlic and herbs, or salt. Of course you also have those who love sweet chex mix recipes with m&ms, chocolate chips, and other tasty ingredients.
Me? I say why choose between one or the other?! Get the best of both worlds with this delicious and simple sweet and salty chex mix with m&ms.
My kids and I quite literally made this no-fuss chex mix dessert in less than 5 minutes. With only 4 ingredients, it can’t get any easier! And talk about tasty- this homemade sweet and salty chex mix dessert recipe has the perfect balance of sweetness from M&M’s and Honey Roasted Peanuts, while the Cheddar Cheese Mix adds just the right amount of saltiness to satisfy your cravings.
And who can argue with pretty pastel colored M&M’s for spring? I mean– I know I can’t. 😉
