Chex Mix and Despicable Me 2

We got a package with some of the ingredients to make Minion Munch and a copy of the new Despicable Me 2 DVD.

The GIFT PACK included:

• (1) Box Honey Nut Chex
• (1) Box Chocolate Chex
• (1) Box Banana Nut Cheerios
• (1) Despicable Me 2 DVD
• (1) Minion USB

Everyone loved the Minion Munch.  It was easy to make and tasted great.  In fact, I made it twice in two days because we liked it so much!

It only takes 15 minutes in the microwave and will have your little minions going nuts for more!

Here is the recipe for:

Minion Munch Chex® Party Mix


2      cups Chocolate Chex® cereal
  • 2      cups Honey Nut Chex cereal
  • 2
    cups Banana Nut Cheeerios® cereal
  • 1
    cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1/4
    cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4
    cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4
    cup peanut butter
  • 1
    cup freeze-dried banana chips
  • 1/2
    cup candy-coated chocolate candies

  • 1.      In large microwaveable bowl, measure cereals and peanuts.
  • 2.
    In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter until melted, about 30 seconds. Stir in brown sugar and peanut butter; microwave 30 seconds longer or until mixture is boiling. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
  • 3.
    Microwave uncovered on High about 3 minutes, stirring every minute, until mixture is glazed. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in dried bananas and candies. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container.



If you can't find freeze-dried banana chips, just use regular dried banana chips.
Either creamy or crunchy peanut butter works well in this recipe.

For those of you who don't have all the ingredients listed, or may not like everything listed, why not try it with something you do like?   There are lots of Chex Mix recipes on their website .  We tried putting butterscotch chips and chocolate chips in place of the dried bananas and chocolate candies the second time we made it, just for a change.  .  I also used a stove with the burner on low to melt the butter, brown sugar and peanut butter.  We really enjoyed the mixture of the two Chex cereals and the banana nut Cheerios, and it really fun, to have a clever snack that went with the movie.  We really had a great time watching the movie and eating our Minion Munch.  

I even have a chance to give away a package to a family member, blog reader or friend!
