Chex Party Mix!

Standard

So I know buying Chex Mix might be a little easier than making your own, but homemade tastes so much better and is much less greasy.  There are all different variations using Chex on their website, but this is my favorite.  I opt to cook it in the over rather than the microwave.

Hot and Spicy Chex Party Mix, from Chex
