This weekend I am hosting a Donut Party for my daughters 8th birthday. It’s going to be a blast and I had a ton of fun prepping and coming up with ideas for this party. One of those ideas is this super yummy, and totally addicting Donut Party Mix! 

Delicious Party Snack Mix - Easy and fun snack recipe!

What make’s it Donut Party Mix? Well, the donut shaped Cheerios and the delicious chocolate “frosting”, of course. But seriously, this snack mix can be used for any occasion. I think it’s perfect as is, but if you want to sweeten it up a bit more, turn it into Muddy Buddies by mixing in melted peanut butter and powder sugar.

So what do you need to make this Party Mix?


3 cups Chex Cereal
3 cups Cheerios
19.20 oz bag of M&M’s
6 oz Candy Melts, color of your choice

You will also need a mixing bowl, mixing spoon, wax paper, microwave safe bowl, spoon and baking sheet.

Prefer written instructions?

Mix the Chex, Cheerios and M&M’s in a bowl.

Place the candy melts in the microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir. If not fully melted, put back in for 30 second blasts until melted.

Line a baking sheet with wax paper and pour the Chex, Cheerios and M&M’s into a thin layer.

Drip the chocolate over the cereal mix.

Place in fridge to cool. 

Serve or store in an air tight container.

Super simple and totally delicious. This snack mix will be a hit of the party!
