You can never have too much of a good thing, right?
I shared a delicious Chex Mix recipe earlier this fall, and so many of y’all have gobbled it right up. I can’t blame you—homemade Chex Mix is definitely a favorite around the Schell house. We love it so much that we’ve put yet another kind of Chex Mix into our snack rotation!
I found our new favorite at One Little Project. I’ve made it three times in the last few weeks, tinkering with the recipe until I found the perfect formula for our family—we put in extra Bugles and Reese’s Pieces. No matter how you adapt this for your own family, I can promise you: it’s a winner. There’s just something about the salty-sweet combo that’s super addictive.
I’m planning to serve this at my Shoebox Packing Party for Operation Christmas Child, and I bet it won’t stay around for long. And if you make this with gluten-free pretzels, even more guests can enjoy this snack!
Try it. I bet you’ll love it.
