Churro Chex Mix [+ Video]

Looking for a fun and easy sweet chex mix? We love this easy churro chex mix for parties and entertaining or just a night at home with Netflix!

I know these went crazy around the web years ago, and I think that recipe is awesome even if I don’t have a clue who started it. There are so many churro chex recipes out there and not many bloggers linked up to a source even though it clearly was not their original idea so now here I am doing the same thing because I cannot figure out who started the craze. 

Tip for Chex Mix
Now I’ll tell you a tip but it’s not necessary, it’s just what I like. I like to use about 1 cup less cereal because I really like how clumpy the mix gets. 

Check out how we make this all happen…

I make a bigger batch of the coating because it makes it more like a churro muddy buddies versus just a snacky chex mix. So, hop on it and probably invite some friends over or you’ll be eating it all.
