Better Than Anything Chex Mix // A sleepover isn't complete unless it has an addictive snack like this chex mix that is literally better than anything and everything!

Today's Sunday Supper Movement event is hosted by Marion of Life Tastes Good and the theme is SLEEPOVER FOODS.

I have not yet braved having sleepovers for my kids and their friends at my house, but Nick and I do love to do movie nights with the older kiddos where we camp out in the living room with snacks galore and blankets and pillows. Before I had Mason, we did them quite regularly and I would always make some kind of a snack food - typically either popcorn or chex mix.

When I found this recipe, I was a little skeptical. It seemed like an overwhelming amount of different sweets and I was hoping that it wouldn't be too much. Luckily, it wasn't. Oh my goodness gracious was it amazing. I am not the biggest fan of marshmallows and even I liked them in this (although I wouldn't mind trying with the little mallow bits you can put in hot cocoa). It was one of those snacks you can't help but keep eating even after you know you should stop LOL. My kids absolutely loved it. They said it was the best chex mix they had ever had.

I am excited for all the new recipes that are being shared today because even though I haven't braved a sleepover, we like to do family sleepovers and we love to try new foods :)

  • 1 box (12.8 box) Rice Chex cereal

  • 1 Tbsp. heavy cream 
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
