Homemade Margarita Chex Mix

I flavored my chex mix with tequila, lime juice, and powdered sugar (you can add salt if you are a salted-rim kind of person).

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Rice Chex
  • 3 cups Wheat Chex
  • 2 cups small pretzel sticks
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon tequila
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Place both kinds of Chex and pretzel rods in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, lime juice, tequila, and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Pour butter mixture over Chex and pretzels and toss until all of the Chex and pretzels are coated.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

If the Chex Mix sits too long, it may get a little soggy. You can revitalize it by spreading the Chex Mix in a single layer on a cookie sheet and lightly toasting it.
I found that the Chex and pretzels had enough salt to make the recipe balance nicely. However, if you are a salted-rim margarita fan, you may want to add salt to the recipe.
If you will be serving this at a party with children, it's OK to leave the tequila out. It will still taste good.
If you live in a country where Chex is not available, you can use another cereal for the recipe, like shredded wheat or flakes.
