Cranberry Orange Chex Mix

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ugogirl

This is so different from any other Chex mix I've tried and so simple to prepare. A co-worker shared this recipe with us after bringing it to a get-together. We all agreed that it made a great holiday munchie. The dried cranberries gives it a festive touch while the orange juice provides a refreshing citrus flavor. Be sure to use concentrate....not juice!
