Chex Party Mix Bowl (well kind of)

A couple of weeks I went to a patio party at my friends Kim and John's place. They built a new patio in their yard and had a party to break it in. I saw this recipe for a Chex Party Mix Bowl in a magazine and thought I would give it a try. It really wasn't that difficult to make; although, mine fell apart. :)You just take a bag of Chex Party Mix (you use 8 cups).

Then take 2 egg whites

and beat until stiff peaks form. I love the little egg separator utensil I have. I use it all the time. It's just plastic and you can find it in any kitchen section of any store really.

Then mix the egg whites with the Chex Party Mix.

Put it into an oven safe bowl. Take a piece of aluminum foil and place in the bowl on top of the Chex Party Mix. You can use the foil to push the Chex Party Mix up the sides of the bowl.

Put the bowl in a 325 degree oven for 30 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes and then remove the foil. Wait until completely cool and then turn the bowl upside down and remove from the Chex Party Mix. What you should have is a nice round bowl.

Instead, this is what I had. Ha! I think I didn't make the Chex Party Mix thick enough up the sides of the bowl. Just make sure it is THICK. Plus, I think I needed a wide bowl and one that wasn't so deep; gravity was not our friend that day. :)

Hey, it's a work in progress. Haven't you ever made something and the first time you made it, it didn't turn out correctly? Next time it will turn out better I'm sure.


  1. I love it. I think yours looks great, even if it didn't turn out how you wanted it to.
