Snacking During the Holidays

The holidays are here and in full swing. Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas tree and lights are up and I am about half way through my Christmas shopping (yay, go me).

I love this time of year and I love that Thanksgiving (well technically my birthday) kicks off almost two months of non-stop fun and social get togethers.

And I love all the special food and treats that I only allow myself to enjoy this time of year. A Chex snack mix is one of those classic party foods and recently discovered that it would be fun to give a Chex snack mix away to friends and neighbors in lieu of a traditional cookie platter (to find out more and how you can win a Chex Party Gift Pack including a $20 gift card click here).

This Chesapeake Bay Snack Mix is savory and each bite is full of a different flavor. This would be great to serve at a holiday party, to give to friends, or keep all to your self!

In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, Old Bay, lemon juice, and hot-pepper sauce. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture and stir until ingredients are completely coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Transfer mixture to two rimmed baking sheets to cool completely.
