My Microwavable Version of Chex Party Mix

Total Time
Prep 9 mins
Cook 6 mins

I am addicted to this stuff! It's so much quicker to make in the microwave. And the kitchen doesn't get heated up if you're making it in the summer. I use store brand corn, rice and wheat squares instead of the Chex brand. Just as good, and a lot less expensive.

Quick and easy to do. I had a box of corn chex I wanted to use up so used all of that plus some peanuts. Followed the recipe as written and we all enjoyed this as a snack last night.
