White Chocolate Peppermint Chex Mix

Chex Mixes are always a great thing to take to a party.

And there always seems to be a party in December.  Not that I mind.  I love a reason to get together, make something delicious, and enjoy some wonderful company.

This week we have 3 of them.  Sweet!

Three new recipes to try out.  Can't wait.  This was one I was trying out.  I love making chex mixes for several reasons.
1. I can eat them (that's always a plus).
2. I  haven't had one yet that I haven't liked.
3. They are super easy.
4. They are very versatile.
5. You can fit them into any occasion.

Peppermint is a favorite at our house this time of year, so we loved this.  Very subtle, but still completely delicious.  How can it not be when it's covered in sugar!
