coconutty sweet chex mix*

Happy Monday everyone! What better way to start the week than share the most amazing snack EVER! This stuff is out of this world. I had it for the first time when I was probably around 10 and never had it again until last year. The thought of this baffles me. I finally googled how to make this amazing treat and then we made it for the kids for a snack on Christmas. It turned out just as amazing as I had remembered it!

I just made this deliciousness over the weekend for our trip to my sister-in-laws - in-laws cabin. Who wants to see pictures of our fun weekend???

Went snowmobiling - Landon went 90 mph w/ me on the back! BIG TROUBLE!!

Shot some guns - I'm an expert clay pigeon shooter!

Don't we look official??

This was our form of transportation for the weekend! AWESOME!

My sister-in-law Andrea and I in the monster Jeep!

We had such a fun time and of course it wouldn't have been complete without some amazing food! The first night Landon and I made some chicken tacos with some cookie dough stuffed cupcakes (recipe coming soon). The next day Andrea made us some yummy orange waffles w/ buttermilk syrup (recipe coming soon) for breakfast, chili for lunch, and a whole Thanksgiving spread for dinner! Then on Sunday morning I made us some yummy strawberry crepes (recipe coming soon). All in all it was an awesome weekend with lots of good food and amazing company!!

I made us a bowl of this chex mix and it was gone I think in less than 24 hours. This stuff is addicting and I am warning you now, don't make it unless you are prepared to clear your schedule so that you can glue your hand to the bowl. Seriously it's all you will be able to think about until it is gone.

When I made this Landon thought it looked disgusting (he's not a coconut fan - but neither am I). The minute he tried it he was hooked. I am so excited that there is actually something sweet in this world that boy likes. Now I am going to have to make it on a weekly basis, but I am fine with it. Stay tuned for the rest of our cabin weekend menu!!
