Chex Mix Recipe-The Holidays Are Upon Us!!!

Well, the much anticipated Holidays are finally here!!! Yay!!!

One thing that my family always looked forward to was the BIG batch of chex Party Mix I always made just before Thanksgiving. 

I'll be continuing that tradition this year- but I think making a half batch instead of a full batch.
I may have to do a couple of substitutions too, depending on what ingredients I can and can't find in the market.

Anyway, This recipe hasn't changed over the's a classic. (Altho a couple of alternate versions have been made and also a couple of sweet versions-none nearly as good as the orginal recipe, IMHO).
And Here it is....

This was a holiday tradition in our family, too, although my mother was not the one who made it. I see lots of variations, and I admit the ones that toss in M&Ms or such-like look good to this chocoholic.
