This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Chex™. The opinions and text are all mine.

The holidays are upon us and our to-do lists as a hostess/mom are endless this time of year. There is lots to accomplish - people to entertain, gifts to buy, kids to feed....I could go on and on!

That is why I always have a “secret weapon” in my recipes/entertaining arsenal. Something tasty, quick and easy to prepare, and one that pleases both young, and young-at-heart-kids! 😉

I'm basically a  HUGE fan of chocolate. And peanut butter. And if you combine both into one tasty recipe, then you're onto a winner for sure!

This is why I love this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios™ Chex™ Muddy Buddies™ Party Mix recipe. It's a mouthful to say...but a super delicious mouthful to taste! :)

A party mix is a great snack any time of year, but for the holidays, it gets elevated to a deluxe version in this recipe with a few of my favorite things: salted peanuts, melted chocolate, creamy peanut butter, mini peanut butter cups...need I say more?

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Muddy Buddy recipe is a perfect snack for all your holiday get-togethers and super easy for when you're entertaining at home this time of year. You can just put out bowls of this tasty mix and watch your guests devour them in record time! :)

My kids love to help me prepare and bake sweet treats this time of year, and making this yummy party mix recipe together is such a fun and tasty tradition to share with them during the holidays! Not to mention that's it's a cinch to make and there's no baking involved, so  it doubles as a great, easy activity to do with the kiddos even before your party starts!

I also love to package little containers or cellophane bags with this tasty party mix to gift to my kid's teachers, to our neighbors, to add to gift hampers and to send guests home with as party favors. It's one less gift off my holiday to-do list! Don't you just love it when food doubles as gifts?!
