Coconut Lime Chex Mix #Recipe for Spring

0 Flares Facebook 0 Google+ 0 StumbleUpon 0 Pin It Share 0 Twitter 0 0 Flares ×

Do you know how happy I am to finally see bright blue skies and green grass. Hopefully we won’t see another flake of snow till next winter and the freezing temperatures are gone for good.

It’s spring time.  That means time spent outside, grilling, sitting around the bonfire, enjoying fresher and tastier food and drinks and enjoying the new season.  With these changes come new attitudes and cravings.  I picked up a bag of limes from the farmers market and knew they were just the right thing to get everyone else into the same spirit as me.

Margaritas are always a hit for movie night but I wanted to shake things up a bit by switching out our typically snacks with something more refreshing.  This is where my Coconut Lime Chex Mix happened.Coconut Lime Chex Mix Recipe for Spring

A little imagination is all that was needed to make this fun and scrumptious treat. I always keep a good supply of ingredients on hand just for these special occasions.

The beauty of Chex Mix is the ability to create your own flavor combination.  Put your favorite tastes together for a delicious sweet or savory snack or even dessert. Coconut Lime Chex Mix Recipe for Spring

Coconut Lime Chex Mix Recipe for Spring

Coconut Lime Chex Mix

Ingredients

  • 6-8 cups Chex Cereal of your choice
  • 3-4 cups air-popped popcorn
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips or vanilla candy melts
  • 4 tbls coconut oil or butter
  • 1-2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1  1/2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tsp fresh lime zest

Directions

In a VERY large or 2 large plastic zipper closure bags add the cereal and popcorn mixture. In a microwaveable bowl or measuring cup melt the butter and chocolate chips till smooth and pourable.  Add the lime juice and immediately pour over the cereal.  Stir, shake and move till it coats as much of the mix as possible.

Add the coconut, sugar and lime zest and give the mixture another good shake or stir.

Let cool, add to large bowl and enjoy.Coconut Lime Chex Mix Recipe for Spring

The white chocolate gives it a little extra sweetness but it can be skipped.  I’d add a touch of vanilla to the melted butter though.

This is making another appearance for our upcoming girls night in as well as Easter dinner.  Come up with your own Chex Mix creations just by adding a little bit of this and little but of that.
