Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    COOKING GLUTEN FREE? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Tip 2
    Not a coconut lover? Leave it out-you'll still have a terrific blend of Mexican Hot Chocolate.
  • Tip 3
    Variation: You can use a mixture of Chex™ cereals in this recipe instead of all Chocolate Chex™. Try using 3 cups Chocolate Chex™ and 3 cups Cinnamon or Rice Chex™ or you could use all three types by using 2 cups of each (2 cups Chocolate Chex™, 2 cups Rice Chex™ and 2 cups Cinnamon Chex™).
