Zebra Chex Mix {Tutorial}

When party planning for a 2 year old...everything has to be bright, colorful, and fun! The party favors were no exception. I didn't want to do "Goodie-bags" because we only had 2 other kids coming, and one of them is an infant, so I did something everyone could take home with them.

Our Hot Pink and Zebra party was finished off with Zebra Chex Mix!

Here's how to make your own...


Rice Chex
Candy Melts (in your party colors)
Ziplock Bag
Wax Paper


Spread your Chex Mix evenly on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.


Microwave your candy melts, one color at a time according to package directions. I do mine 30 seconds at a time until it's nice and gooey. Put the melted candy into a Ziplock bag.

Snip off the very tip of the bag's corner.


Now go wild and spread the candy over the Chex Mix!! If you had an older child, they would LOVE this. Do one color at a time, making sure you get some stripes on each little cereal square. I did black (chocolate) and pink first, then went back an added some white for fun.


Allow your Chex to dry completely, then place in little bags for giving! I added "Thank You" tags from Cupcake Express to finish off my bags. Aren't those tags adorable??


Crunchy.....sweet....and yummy. A perfect ending.


I just realized it's been almost a month since Gray's party. Talk about procrastination with posting!!

Coming soon will be a super-fun announcement about our new little  bundle of joy.....

  1. They look really pretty!
    I agree that it's nice to give things to the grown-ups too... especially at parties for children where the adults outnumber the kids. Love your mix - so cute!
