I made this fun pink chex snack mix for our baby shower last week, but it is very also appropriate this month for Pinktober.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I have a few people very near and dear to me who are survivors – as well as the memory of a very special sister-in-law we lost at the age of 50 to breast cancer.
So Go Pink!
Celebrate… remember… create awareness… enjoy… by sharing this yummy treat with people you love.
Go Pink Chex Party Mix
- 6 cups rice Chex cereal
- 6 cups corn Chex cereal
- 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
- 3 cups pretzels
- 2 12-oz bags Wilton Pink Candy Melts
Mix cereal, peanuts, and pretzels in a large bowl.
Place candy melts in microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on High for one minute. Stir. Return to microwave for one more minute. Stir. Microwave for additional 30-second intervals if needed until completely melted. (My microwave only took two minutes total to completely melt.) Pour over cereal mix to coat evenly.
Spread in single layer onto waxed paper or parchment paper, and let cool completely.
Once cool, break into pieces, and store in airtight container.
I made a triple batch for our party. I made one with white candy melts, one with light pink, and one with bright pink, then mixed all together.
You could also make this with milk chocolate, dark chocolate or any other color candy melts to match your party theme or celebration.
It is really yummy…. and really addictive!
Cheers & Hugs,
