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 years...it'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....
