Honey garlic chex mix is so easy to make and so hard to resist. Perfect for holiday parties and snow days cozied up at home.

Right before the holidays started this year, I put together a new chex mix recipe that has since become a favorite! This honey garlic chex mix is the perfect blend of sweet and savory, and every batch I make seems to disappear in a heartbeat. In fact, I have a hard time keeping a batch around long enough to get pictures of it! I finally made some today while no one else was home, so I can finally share the recipe with you.

A few months ago, someone I follow on Twitter mentioned loving a homemade honey garlic party mix, but didn’t offer up any details other than a list of ingredients. No amounts, no directions. And when I tried googling it, I couldn’t find any results. So I did a bunch of research (i.e., eating test batches of said chex mix) and came up with this recipe, and it is such a winner!

If you’ve never made homemade chex mix before, let me assure you that it is extremely easy and very much worth it. I love store-bought chex mix as much as anyone, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the homemade kind. And this particular recipe is special because the honey flavored cereals add a lovely level of sweetness, while the garlic adds extra flavor and boldness. I promise you’ll love it, and everyone you share it with will be begging you to make more!
