Expert Tips

Chex Mix® hit the party scene in 1955 and has been a favorite TV snack mix ever since.

To ease the load of last-minute prep, make the mix up to 2 weeks ahead and store in an airtight container.

For just 2 grams of fat and 90 calories per serving, decrease butter to 3 tablespoons, omit mixed nuts and use fat-free bagel chips.
