Easy Gift Giving Ideas with Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios™ Chex™ Muddy Buddy™ Party Mix

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Chex™. The opinions and text are all mine.

Gift giving season is in full force. We like to give something to everyone who has touched our lives in the past year, including teachers, neighbors, and even our mail delivery people (thank you for letting me stay in my PJs while I shop)! And although these people have touched our lives, they may not be the easiest person to gift to because you may not know them that well. And that's where Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios™ Chex™ Muddy Buddies Party Mix comes in. Not only is it a great party mix, but it also makes a great and easy delicious gift as well.

1 cup Nestlé® semisweet chocolate chips
