Crafty Sunday #2 is a bit late this week! This season has us filling our days with local workshops, DIY in a BOX orders & holiday cheer- what can we say! Holiday Chex Mix has been a favorite mini gift of mine for years, it's the PERFECT thing to give to all your loved ones & Santa's helpers (i.e. mailman, teachers, co-workers).
This year Cooper (our 3 year old) & I made a batch of 20+ (I doubled the recipe for 36, 3 cases of 12 jars, + some extra for Cooper to munch on!) to gift to family on Christmas Eve + extras for all the fantastic people outside of our crew that help us on the daily, & a few for those amazing women who teach our son at preschool.
20 - 8 oz. Mason Jars (I used Kerr, found HERE)
1 Box Cinnamon Chex
1 Box Vanilla Chex
1 lb Red, Green & White Gumdrop Mix
Festive Sprinkles (We found these amazing little trees in the bakery department of our local grocer!)
1. There's a reason why this is such an awesome recipe to make with the kiddos. It's simple, fun, doesn't require heat & is delicious from the get-go. Step 1 is to put everything, but the sprinkles, into a giant bowl & mix.
2. Use a 1 cup measuring cup to fill the jars with the mix, & once full add the sprinkles around the edge of the inside of the jar, so they can be seen from the outside.
And that's it! Easiest treat recipe ever + you'll win at mini gifting every time. PLUS if you put this in a bowl, & bring it with your loved ones to one of our workshops this season you'll have the perfect accompaniment to your night out crafting.
