S’mores Chex Mix (Gluten Free) #SummerWithChex

Yeah!!!  It’s officially S’more Season and I can’t wait to eat my share of S’mores and S’more-inspired treats (like this S’mores Chex Mix) this summer!

S'mores Chex Mix | A Sweet Baker

There’s nothing  better than sitting around a campfire and toasting up marshmallows and squishing them between a piece of chocolate and two cookies!  Who wouldn’t love that?   But, if you can’t have a fire in your backyard then I’ve got the perfect alternative – S’mores Chex Mix!   It’s the perfect snack for summer and the perfect on-the-go snack for summer road trips.  It’s got all the goodness of marshmallows, chocolate and the crunch from the Rice Chex and Honey Nut Chex cereals, both which happen to be gluten-free and are a healthier alternative to other snack food.  It’s quick and easy to put together so you’ll be snacking in no time!

I also love this time of year when I can open up the windows and smell the freshly cut grass blow in. This past weekend I cleaned every window in our house, inside and out.  It’s one more thing I can check off my list of things I’d like to get done before I’m off for the summer.  I’d rather be outside enjoying the sunshine with my kiddies than spending my time inside cleaning the house.  My list is getting shorter and if everything doesn’t get done…..oh well!

S'mores Chex Mix | A Sweet Baker

One thing I’ve learned from owning a house for the past 13 years is that there’s always something that can be done.  It doesn’t matter if you own a fixer-upper or a brand-new house, you’ll always find something that can be fixed, touched up, re-done or cleaned up. The key is to know when to stop!  For us, our kids have been a good way of getting us to put things into perspective and walk away.  The mess, renovations, or broken things will always be there tomorrow.

Enjoy summer while you can!

It’s been so long since I’ve posted last that I actually feel refreshed and energized to get back into the swing of things.

Now that summer’s in full swing it seems like the kids can’t get enough of things to snack on.  I always have fresh veggies and fruit on hand but lately we’ve all been tempted by a not-so-healthy snack – chips!   I’m a flavoured chip kinda girl but on occasion I like to indulge in […]

Whenever we go out for Chinese Food I always make sure to order Spring Rolls.  They’re one of my favourite things on the menu and I love dipping them in a sweet sauce. I never thought that making my own Chicken & Veggie Spring Rolls at home would be so easy.  I had these delicious […]
