Blueberry Chex Party Mix: 3 Ways

We’re celebrating National Blueberry Day with Chex™ and their latest cereal, Blueberry Chex. It has all of the fresh-picked flavors of summer, which inspired us to create party mixes we could enjoy all season long. But we didn’t stop at one — we mixed up three fruity party mixes for all kinds of summer get-togethers: Blueberry Crumble, Mixed Berry & Nut, and Banana CocoNut Chex Party Mix.

These Chex mixes aren’t just a hit at parties — we’ve also been sprinkling them on top of yogurt for breakfast and packing them as a delicious (and lightweight) camping snack. Move these to the top of your list of must-try no-bake treats for those summer days when it’s too hot to even look at your oven — because you can make these in about 10 minutes using nothing more than your microwave. Each mix is loaded with Blueberry Chex, lots of real fruit, and wholesome nuts. And they’re perfectly sweetened with a mix of brown sugar, honey, and natural fruit juice.





First up is our Blueberry Crumble Chex Party Mix inspired by everyone’s favorite fresh-baked summer treat. Don’t be surprised if the sweet and toasty smells wafting from your kitchen fool everyone into thinking you’re baking up a storm (they don’t have to know that making this microwave party mix is so much quicker and easier). And with all those Blueberry Chex, pecans, freeze-dried blueberries, and a touch of cinnamon, this really does taste just like the crumbly topping on a blueberry cobbler (which everyone knows is the best part anyway). Enjoy this party mix by the handful at a picnic or backyard cookout.

Blueberry Crumble Chex™ Party Mix

Serves: 15
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Total Time: 10 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Blueberry Chex Cereal
  • 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 cups chopped pecan halves
  • 6 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 cups freeze-dried blueberries

Directions

  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the Blueberry Chex Cereal, chopped pecans, rolled oats, and cinnamon.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, combine the butter, brown sugar, and honey. Microwave it for 1 minute and stir, then microwave it for another 30 seconds, or until the mixture is boiling. Stir it again and pour it over the cereal mixture. Gently stir to combine all of the ingredients.
  3. Microwave the coated cereal for 4 – 5 minutes, stirring every minute. Stir in the freeze-dried blueberries. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and allow it to cool completely. When it has cooled, break up the party mix into bite-sized clusters and store in an airtight container.

Berry lovers, this next mix is for you. It’s bursting with tart-sweet strawberries and raspberries, plus plenty of crispy Blueberry Chex cereal — and since it’s sweetened just with orange juice and a little bit of brown sugar, you can actually taste the very berry flavors and not just get a sugar rush. And parents: we know you don’t want to think about this yet, but save this recipe for back-to-school inspiration when you’ll need goodies to tuck into kids’ lunches and tasty homemade after-school snacks.

  • ¾ cup freeze-dried raspberries
  • ¾ cup freeze-dried strawberries

  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the Blueberry Chex Cereal, almonds, and freeze-dried berries.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, combine the orange juice concentrate, butter, and brown sugar. Microwave the mixture on high for 1 minute (or until it has melted) and stir to mix the ingredients together. Pour it over the cereal mixture and stir until everything is evenly coated.
  3. Microwave the coated cereal for 4 – 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until it’s just starting to brown.

Even if you can’t go on a tropical vacation this summer, your party mix can. We took summer’s juicy fruit flavors to the max and mixed up Blueberry Chex with shredded coconut, crunchy banana chips, and almonds. This mix is sweetened with pineapple juice to give it that extra exotic taste of the tropics. Get out the tiki torches and put out a bowl of this party mix poolside or at a luau-themed party — and no, we don’t think that serving it in coconut halves would be going too far.
