Kentucky Bourbon Chex Mix

This is a sponsored post by Challenge Butter, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible!

It's official: I have confirmed that I am indeed a crazy person. On Sunday, I signed up to run my first half marathon, the Indy 500 Mini Marathon. But here's the thing, the race is this Saturday! So clearly, I didn't train for it, other than my daily Orange Theory class. Oh yeah, and you know how I said this is my first half marathon? Well, what I really meant to say was this is my first race of any kind ever. Like I've never even done a 5K before. And by the way, all of this is in the midst of me preparing for a presentation and a final exam for my last required anatomy and physiology class.

So like I said, I am indeed a crazy person! Although, I probably didn't need to convince you.

Speaking of races, the Kentucky Derby is also this Saturday. I'm clearly not going but I wanted to make a Kentucky Derby-themed recipe. But I also wanted the recipe to be appealing to those who aren't interested in the Derby.

Let me introduce you to this Kentucky Bourbon Chex Mix! Party mixes are always a win in my book, and this one is particularly addicting. The flavors are unique, but they all work very well together. And can I just mention for a second that this is so incredible easy to make. Skills required include microwaving and mixing. That's pretty much it!

  1. Cooked it. A bit complicated as for me, but the taste is perfect.

  3. A little clarification, if you cook in a small rotisserie oven then 275 degrees will be too much, part of the cookies were burned.

  5. Hi, I was trying to fix up my credit and unfortunately I had one negative item on my credit report, a charge-off from Bank of America from 2019 in the amount of $541. My credit score is a sad one: 543. I did pay the amount owed about a month ago, and my score only went up two points. The comments were changed to paid charge off, account closed by credit grantor. However, I was still saying CHARGE OFF in red under payment status. Last month I asked a question on this forum” Does anyone have any advice on what I should do to raise my score” and two members from this forum advised me to contact PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. Which quickly did as they said. PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST came through for me, my credit report cleaned up with all negative items removed. My credit score is now 801. I now have 0 hard inquiries, 0 collections, 0 public records. I’m happy to have heard about PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST here, you can contact him today via: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM OR Text +1 (402) 885 9847.
