Chex™ Party Mix isn’t just for the holidays! But you probably already knew that, didn’t you? We see Chex™ Mix recipes all over the internet throughout the year because they are so easy to make and everyone loves them. But have you ever thought of making a Chex™ Mix recipe for the kids for a fun after school snack? I grabbed a few handy ingredients at Publix® and recreated this Honey Peanut School Fuel Chex™ Mix recipe before Angeline and I headed out to Seattle so that we would have a snack to take with us on our flight! It was a great way to try out the recipe and see if it was going to become part of our school routine.
Chex™ has a ton of recipes that are perfect for whipping up a quick snack for the kids after school. And guess what? They only take 15 minutes to make – or less! You can make these ahead of time while you’re tidying up after dinner or after school while they kids are getting their homework sorted.
Do you struggle with ideas of what to put in the children’s lunchboxes during school? Chex™ Mix is an easy way to give your kids a homemade goody in their lunchbox during the busy back to school season, and you KNOW that the kids will eat them up!

There’s also an equally easy recipe for Chex Apple Almond Bars too!
Honey-Peanut School Fuel Recipe
6 cups Corn Chex™ cereal
4cups Cheerios™ Protein Oats & Honey cereal
1cup honey-roasted peanuts
1 1/2cups candy-coated chocolate-covered peanut candies
In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals and peanuts.
In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter and honey uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until mixture comes to a full boil and butter is melted.
Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 4 minutes, stirring every minute, until mixture is well coated and looks glazed.
Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Place in serving bowl; stir in candies. (I disregarded this part of the recipe and just stirred it all together in the large bowl. It’s just easier that way!
Store in airtight container.
A few tips from the Chex™ website…
Method Note: Spray inside of measuring cup with cooking spray before measuring honey so the honey will slide right out after measuring.
Family/Kids: This snack is perfect for lunch boxes when packaged in small resealable food-storage plastic bags.
