Peppermint Chex Mix is on of my favorite holiday Chex Mix recipes because it’s so simple to make and tastes SO good. It’s seriously addictive- just set the bowl out and watch it disappear! The white chocolate coats the cereal and adds a nice sweetness to the crunchy mix that everyone seems to love.

The peppermint is a great addition too! I like using a combination of crushed candy canes and Peppermint Crunch baking chips- which are small bits of candy cane and peppermint chocolate candy in one. It also adds a nice color to the dessert. You can find Peppermint Crunch on the baking aisle, near the bags of chocolate chips.

  2. I made 2 batches of this. One with white chocolate chips, the other with regular chocolate chips. Both are to die for! However, next time I think I will add at least 1/2 cup of crushed peppermint, instead of 1/3, to make it a little more minty.

  3. I tried this two times. The first was an epic fail, the second I made 2 tweaks and it was awesome. The first time the chips went from semi melt to burnt in about 10 seconds. The second time I did the white chocolate melts in a large saucepan on the stove.
