Confessions of a Non-Cook: The Beauty of 15 Minute Chex Mix Recipes are that ANYONE can make them & A MEGA GIVEAWAY which includes a $50 AMEX giftcard!
Congrats to our winner Elena!
When I first got married I was determined to cook. The two times I attempted to prepare a meal for my husband- went disastrously wrong. I put the pasta in the boiling water and then ( because clearly my timing is completely off) I decided to jump in the shower. Twenty minutes later the smoke alarm rattled me- I jumped out of the shower stall with soap in my eyes and grabbed the extinguisher to put out the small fire that had erupted in the kitchen. It was not pretty. The second time I made meatloaf. I was determined to give my meatloaf body and texture and so I think I might have added too many eggs and breadcrumbs. The result was somewhat Sawdusty and my husband needed an entire glass of water to CHASE down each bite. It was painful to watch him try and swallow. Suffice it to say my subsequent attempts at cooking have been quite lackluster which brings me to THE SHEER BEAUTY of a Chex Mix RECIPE!
Chex developed three delicious recipes that are inspired by seasonal favorites and are ready in just 15 minutes and as a NON-COOK they brilliantly ERROR FREE. These Sugar Cookie, Pumpkin Pie Crunch and Mexican Hot Chocolate recipes are perfect to pass at a party or package as gifts.
