Maple Bacon Party Mix


  • 2 cups corn chex
  • 2 cups rice chex
  • 2 cups wheat chex
  • 1 cup peanuts, salted and roasted
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked extra crispy and chopped
  • 4 T. butter, melted
  • 4 T. maple syrup
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 1-1 1/2 teaspoons Maldon (any salt will do but if you are using table salt reduce the quantity)


Combine the cereals, peanuts, and cayenne in a large, microwavable-safe bowl.

In a small bowl combine the butter and maple syrup. Add the butter mixture to the cereal and stir very well. 

Microwave on high for three minutes stirring every minute to prevent the sugars to scorch. Add the bacon and salt. 

Stir. Let cool. Serve.

    Do you know if you can make this in the oven? We don't have a microwave.

    I am TOTALLY making this for hubby's birthday party!

    Next on your bacon list: bacon ice cream.

    I made this for a bacon-loving priest friend and everyone at the party loved it. It is delicious!

    Thx for sharing these great recipes…. :o) Becky

    I am sure you could. We don't have a microwave either. Probably at 350 or 375 and shake it often, maybe like 10 or 15 minutes? That is just a guess though. I would just keep a close eye on it. It looks amazing!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
