It’s a little disturbing to think about how much of this Chex mix that I can put away. One little Checky-Check at a time… little by little… I end up eating like, a trough of this. I’m a BIG time snacker, little things to nibble on are my weakness- and I LOVE the cheese crackers in this too.
Since this recipe makes almost 20 cups, you’ll probably end up putting some of this out for guests at some point, so making it gluten-free is definitely a safe way to go. I like to put out multiple bowls around different places in the house so that people are always within arm’s reach 😉
I made this snack when my parents visited from Colorado last week. My sister and I are in it for the Chex and Cheese crackers, my dad is in it for the nuts, and my mom must eat the pretzels because there is always a perfect balance of this mix left, even though we all pick out our favorite parts (thinking no one else notices that we are doing it.)-Tisk tisk!
Are you big on snacking?! What’s your all-time favorite snack?!
Cheez-Its pretty much get me every time. (My friend Tracy from Served From Scratch makes her own Cheez-Its at home!)
