White Chocolate Chex Mix is one of my favorite recipes to take to a party or to divide up into cute little bags to hand out to neighbors and friends during the holidays. The white chocolate coating is easily melted in the microwave – this recipe could not be any easier! Although I typically make this recipe around the holidays, it is a great snack mix for the rest of the year too. Just use regular M&Ms instead of the holiday variety and this chex mix recipe becomes the perfect snack recipe all year long!
This White Chocolate Party Mix recipe makes a very large batch of chex mix so you’ll definitely want to plan to share! This snack mix is one of the yummiest that I’ve tried and even though it is delicious (and somewhat addictive!), I feel like my family can barely make a dent because it makes so much! I love taking this recipe to parties and handing it out to neighbors and friends.
My favorite way to gift this delicious chex mix recipe is to put it in cellophane bags like these. These work great for teacher Christmas gifts too! You can easily make 15-20 generously portioned gift bags out of one batch – super easy, super cheap and everyone loves this delicious snack mix.

What type of chocolate works best in white chocolate party mix?
I usually just use whatever brand of white chocolate chips I happen to have on hand, and the recipe tastes amazing and works out well every time! If you are a little bit pickier about your chocolate, you can definitely use a higher quality white chocolate for the candy coating on this Chex mix. I actually don’t usually like white chocolate very much, but absolutely love it in this recipe – something about the other flavors makes it so yummy!
How long can you store chex mix?
This chex mix recipe will stay fresh for about 3-4 days in an airtight container. Any longer than that, and the cereal will start to taste a bit stale, so make sure to package some up and start handing it out to the neighbors – this batch is pretty large!
