mexican hot chocolate chex mixI had a few free minutes the other day, so I decided it was time to make Mexican Hot Chocolate Chex Party Mix. I received the ingredients and recipe from Platefull Co-Op and the recipe said it would take 15 minutes, start to finish.

That’s the sort of recipes I like. Simple, quick and easy.

This one is so simple. It’s measure, microwave, and stir. That’s it. And it’s delicious. I ended up making enough to share with five people, and each one was impressed (so impressed that people went in for one bite and ended up taking handfuls after that first bite). It’s definitely a crowdpleaser and something you want to make for your next party.
