This sugar cookie Chex mix recipe is a delicious twist on an old snack that you and your family will love! All of the delicious flavors of a sugar cookie in a delicious snack mix.
A Sweet Snack Mix
Is there anything better than a sugar cookie? They are some of my very favorite treats! One thing I don’t love about them, though, is how long they take to make. Between mixing, chilling, baking, and decorating, it takes hours before I can enjoy some delicious cookies.
Needless to say I was so thrilled when I partnered with Chex and discovered this sugar cookie Chex mix recipe! It tastes just like a sugar cookie, but with the delicious crunch of a Chex mix! It takes only a few minutes to make, and is made with simple, easy ingredients. I made this sugar cookie Chex mix with my girls recently, and they had so much fun measuring, pouring, and sprinkling!
How To Make Sugar Cookie Chex Mix
Cereal – Measure the Chex cereal into a large microwaveable bowl and set it aside.
Mixture – Add the butter to a 2 cup microwave-safe measuring cup and then microwave it for 30 seconds on high, or until it has melted. Next, add the sugar and water, and microwave it for another 30 seconds. Mix everything until it’s nice and smooth. Finally, add in the vanilla to the mixture. Pour the butter mixture over the cereal and toss to combine.
A Little More Heat – Place the bowl with the cereal into the microwave and microwave on high for four one-minute intervals. You’ll want to give everything a good stir in between each interval.
A Dusting Of Sugar – Sprinkle the nix with the powdered sugar and stir everything until coated. Alternatively, you can allow the Chex mix to cool for a few minutes and add it to a zipper bag with the powdered sugar. Then you can give it a good shake until everything is coated. Once the powdered sugar is added, spread the Chex mix on a baking sheet to cool.
Final Touches – Microwave the white chocolate or baking chips on high for about 30 seconds. You just want everything to be melted so it can be stirred smooth. Drizzle the white chocolate over the Chex mix and scatter the sprinkles over the top. Allow to cool completely before serving.
Storing – Just like a box of cereal, this Chex mix won’t do well sitting out. Store whatever you don’t plan on eating in the next couple of hours in an airtight container.
This sugar cookie Chex mix would make a perfect gift for a friend or neighbor! I wanted them to have a more personalized touch, so we got to work making cookie-shaped gift tags for our Chex mix. I quickly traced some circles onto brown kraft paper to represent the cookies, and let the girls go to town with all of their art supplies.
I absolutely love how cute they turned out! I just added the Chex mix to a cellophane bag, tied with a fun ribbon, and added the cute tags. I’ll bet you can’t tell which tag was done by the eight year old and which was done by the four year old. 🙂
