The Original Recipe:
This recipe is on the back of the Chex boxes. It is super simple to make. I have never made them before tonight, so I wasn't aware of how easy it really was. While sampling a few of these I could imagine adding in peanuts and some pretzels to the mix. I think it would just give it that salty/sweet fulfillment and make it a great snack.
