This Christmas Chex Mix with gingerbread men cookies and yogurt-covered pretzels is perfect for holiday movie nights and kids parties.

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Chex. I received a holiday party in a box and a gift card to create this fun holiday recipe.

Marisol’s class had a holiday party yesterday. The kids wore pajamas to school and enjoyed brunch-style party food while they watched a holiday movie. To make it just a little educational, the teacher taught them how to make homemade butter to put on their toast and bagels. Marisol was so excited to bring her jar of homemade butter home yesterday.

Parents also came together and pitched in with fun potluck dishes to share for the party.

I took a holiday brunch Chex mix. I thought this would be perfect for the kids to scoop into bowls and snack on while they watched the movie.

It combines much easier (and with less breakage of cookies and donuts) if you combine a quarter of all ingredients at a time.

The kids loved it and it was so simple to whip up in the morning before school.
