I love Chex Mix. But I like making it myself better than buying a bag at the store. Controlling the spice and the ingredients is the best part. I often toy with the ratios of spices and ingredients. You can vary the original recipe any way you’d like really! Add things like sesame sticks, almonds or other nuts, Cherrios, cheese crackers, raisins, dried cranberries, just to name a few. Plus it smells so good baking in the oven!
