A different spin on Chex mix which we love. Wasabi is the Japanese version of horseradish and has a sharp, pungent, fiery flavor. Wasabi-coated peas add a fiery sweet flavor to the snack mix. If you choose not to use them in this recipe, substitute 1 cup sesame sticks. You can choose if you want to cook in the microwave or oven. From the Betty Crocker website.
