Aloha Chex Mix

I’m on vacation this week, so it may take me a little longer to respond to comments/questions. Hope you’re enjoying your August!!

Chex Mix. It makes me happy.

You know who else loves Chex Mix?

This guy.

I realize it's really irritating when people talk about how cute their kids are, but seriously. Come on.

In fact, he doesn’t quite get the distinction between Chex, as in the cereal you eat for breakfast, and Chex Mix, which can lead to some super enjoyable mornings in our house.

For the luau a couple of weeks ago, I made an Aloha Chex Mix.

I have made a ton of different types of Chex Mix, but this was the first time I made up my own recipe. {Although I did base it loosely on this one.}

It’s super easy, but I did mess it up a bit as I was making it. {Blogging Fail alert!! The lemon buddies recipe called for lemon juice and lemon zest, so I decided to add pineapple juice instead. But then it didn’t taste pineapple-y enough, so I added a bit more. Which ended up making the cereal soggy and it tasted like it had been left outside on a humid day. And it still didn’t taste very pineapple-y, so I bagged the juice altogether.} I have adjusted the recipe here to account for my mistake.
