Good Old Chex Mix

natewrites | Sep 7, 2010 04:46 PM

With the holidays coming up sure enough after Labor Day, so will the homemade Chex Mix.

However, not all Chex Mix recipes are created equal. I've had some Chex Mix at parties that was awful: dried out, flavorless, skimpy on the goodies.

I've seen Chex Mix with dried Ranch mix in it, with Cheetos, with bagel chips, with Pepperidge Farms Goldfish in it. You name it.

For me, I double the peanuts, use straight pretzels, not twists, and I double the butter and the seasonings. I put a tiny splash of hickory smoke into the butter/seasonings, too.

What do you put in your Chex Mix that is different?
