Hooray! Another easy and delicious Chex snack mix recipe. Can one ever really have enough Chex mix? Not in my house! My whole family loves it. My hubby munches on some whenever he happens to pass by it... it's hard to resist! The kids love to take it to school for a snack, and they also reach for it when watching movies at home. Me? I eat it anytime... I am always up for a tasty snack. This makes such a large amount that we can enjoy a batch for a whole week. Give it a try. It has a wonderful savory flavor with just the right amount of chili powder to give it a mild kick. Trust me though, it isn't too spicy for kids. My kids are very picky eaters and they all enjoy it. :) I added more peanuts than the original recipe on the Chex box called for and I think it is even better now. Let me know how you like it!
