Chex Party Mix-Change

Mix it up this gift-swapping season with a Chex Party Mix-Change featuring 15-minute recipes.


Two Weeks Before

  • Set the time and date. Don’t limit yourself to evening parties. Lunch hours or after-work happy hours are great times to exchange with co- workers. 
  • Establish a guest list. Chex Party Mix-Change can be scaled up or down depending on the number of participants and how much everyone would like to take home. 
  • For small groups, ask each guest to bring a one-gallon bag per person. For larger parties where more mixes will be exchanged, consider quart-size bags or smaller. 
  • Let guests know they don't need to package their mixes—that's part of the fun to come at the party! 
  • Choose from our three custom invites, print and mail. 

One Week Before 

The Day Before

  • Set up a table with pens, cards and supplies for guests to package and label their mixes.
  • Prep appetizers and cut vegetables. Make ice for beverages.
  • Make the Super Easy Peppermint Chocolate Fudge and your Chex Party Mix.

Day of the Party

  • Clear space and establish areas for crafting, swapping and snacking.
  • Finish preparing appetizers.
  • Set cheese out one hour before guests arrive.
  • Rim martini glasses for Peppermint Barktinis.

At the Party

  • Let guests dig in and package up their treats in creative containers, bags and decorations.
  • Don't forget the tunes. Pandora and Spotify are great tools for party hits.
  • Gather everyone's email addresses for distributing the recipes following the party.

Packaging Ideas

Packaging your favorite Chex® Party Mixes in cellophane bags is simple, cute and endlessly customizable. Clothespins, stickers, rickrack, twine, ribbon or decorative tape can be used to secure the bags.

Flip a party hat upside down, line it with cellophane and it instantly becomes a festive cone-shaped container. Party hats can be purchased or they can be made using colorful sheets of construction paper, holiday gift wrap or paper placemats.

Arrange cupcake liners filled with Chex® Party Mixes neatly in a box. Try using a box with a window to give a peek at the goodies inside. Decorate the outside of the box with printed paper and ribbon for extra flair.

Packaging Chex® Party Mix  in a takeout container is quick and easy to “carry out.” Just fill them up and they’re ready to go!

Tin is in when it comes to creating a hip holiday container for Chex® Party Mix. Discover oodles of holiday tins at craft stores, dollar stores and consignment shops. Line tins and use bows or ribbon to finish them off.
