Chex Snack Mix
The first time I spent Christmas in Florida with Stephen's family his mom made a giant batch of Chex mix. We gobbled it down over the course of a few days and begged her to make more. If I remember correctly, she even gave us bags of it to take back to Utah with us! It's pretty addictive. So this year just before Christmas I stocked up on Chex cereal because I knew Stephen would want me to make some. Unfortunately he didn't get much. I scarfed it down and left crumbs for him to pick at. Embarrassing, I know, but it's such a great little snack! I like to add a few extra things to ours like cheese crackers and rye chips because I think they add great flavor and texture to the mix. And when I'm in the mood I'll toss in some cayenne pepper to spice things up, but don't worry it's really subtle. I hope you'll give our version a try- it won't disappoint!
