Snickers Chex Mix

Chex Mix with chocolate and caramel drizzles, Snickers bits, and peanuts - all the sweet and saltiness you want in a snack!

I'll be honest and say that I think that this is the best Chex mix I've ever had. I love a sweet and salty combo which is probably why I like Snickers so much. This Chex mix is supposed to be chocolate Chex based, but unfortunately we didn't have that so I used plain Chex. For as good as this recipe was with plain Chex, I can only imagine how amazing it is with chocolate Chex. This recipe has a chocolate drizzle, a caramel drizzle, Snickers bits, and peanuts. It's exactly what you'd want in a sweet Chex mix.

Jalapeno Popper Tuna Melts

Tuna melts with a kick of roasted jalapeno plus extra cheese and a bit of bacon too.

I have never had a more delicious tuna melt in my life. I love roasted jalapenos and they are super easy to do and are a genius addition to tuna salad. I loved the tuna salad part of this recipe too. I think I'm going to be adding a little lemon juice to every tuna salad I make for the rest of my life. That zing of lemon is perfect. We also got to try muenster cheese for the first time and we all liked it. It's always fun to try something new and everyone likes it :)

Slow Cooker Melt in Your Mouth BBQ Chicken

This chicken is slow cooked in homemade bbq sauce that is sweet and smokey with a little bite of vinegar!

I'm down for bbq sandwiches any time and I like to try out different recipes because there are so many styles of barbecue sauce out there. I believe this is closer to a Kansas City style bbq with its sweetness. But I do love the smokey flavor added by the molasses. I personally want coleslaw on any bbq sandwich, so I just whipped up some with prepared coleslaw dressing and premade cabbage mix.

Turkey Parmesan Pasta

This amazing 7 ingredient dinner is ready in under 30 minutes and is a one pot meal!

I really love pasta dishes because they are so quick and they are typically easy on the wallet too. I was happy to find this really easy recipe because I have been trying to use more ground turkey than beef. Again, this is a really simple dish to throw together with only 7 ingredients. You may already have many of these on hand. It's a one pot meal - some of my favorites - and it's ready in under 30 minutes.

Butterscotch Pie

The perfect no-bake dessert with six ingredients that is so quick to throw together!

I mostly prefer chocolate desserts. That's not to say that I don't like other desserts, but chocolate desserts are usually my favorite. However, I will say that my favorite pudding flavor is butterscotch. For some reason, we got butterscotch pudding the most when I was a kid and I loved it with a little dollop of Cool Whip because we always had Cool Whip on hand. I knew I would love this dessert and even though it isn't pudding alone, it's a pudding pie and it was very nostalgic.
