Chex Mix Recipe
Happy 70th Birthday, Chex Party Mix!
So I grew up in the homemade Chex Mix era. If you wanted some, you had to make it yourself. Can you imagine?! 😜
And we go way back to when the original recipe was published in 1952, Corn Chex was not even a thing yet. I think it was a great addition to this yummy snack which has now evolved into these beloved and addictive crunchy munchies!
This is my first savory recipe post here at Sugartown Sweets and I am not sorry about it! 😋
Look at all these yummy ingredients!
I used a very large mixing bowl, measuring cup and measuring spoons.
I also used 2 baking pans lined with parchment paper.

When you have been blessed with two amazing candy queens in your life, making your own fudge can seem a little intimidating. But fear not fellow aspiring candy makers! This recipe is for you and for me! It really is super simple and can be made -start to finish- in 20 minutes!
So thank you, Memaw and Mama, for passing down to me your love of candy making. I love and miss you both. 💓
Ingredients needed to make this delicious fudge:
Granulated sugar, butter, semi-sweet chocolate chips, evaporated milk, marshmallow creme, pecans, and vanilla extract.
After combining butter, sugar, and evaporated milk, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until candy thermometer reaches 234 F. Remove from heat.
Stir in chocolate chips until melted.
Add marshmallow creme and stir until fully incorporated.
Stir in pecans and vanilla and pour into prepared dish.
I am using a buttered dish because that is what my Mama did. Of course you can also use buttered or sprayed foil inside your dish if you prefer.
Let candy set until cooled completely before cutting.
Ahhh! Look at this beautiful fudge! I think my Mom and my Memaw would be proud!😊

-Prepare 8x8 pan (or your favorite size) with butter.
If you prefer, you can line your dish with sprayed foil. Set aside.
In a heavy bottomed saucepan (I used a 3 quart), combine sugar, butter, and evaporated milk. Cook, stirring constantly over medium heat until candy thermometer reaches 234 F. Remove from heat.
(It took 14 minutes from the start for mine to hit 234 F.)

Add pecans and vanilla. Stir until fully incorporated.
Pour candy into buttered dish. Do not scrape pan. Let cool completely before cutting.

Brownie Cupcakes Topped w/Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Squares
Who loves a really quick, yummy, and chocolaty brownie cupcake? What if they're made with a simple doctored up box mix? Yes, me! You too?
I first made these for Elizabeth's -my granddaughter's- birthday. They were a hit and disappeared fast!
Let's make some!
I used one package of Ghirardelli triple chocolate brownie mix, buttermilk, oil, egg, and vanilla. After baking, I topped them with Ghirardelli candy squares.
