This is similar to the Chex mix but I actually like it a little better. The original recipe calls for garlic and onion salt instead of powder and salted nuts, but I find that too salty.

I like the recipe with less salt as well, the pretzels and butter add just enough. I added some dijon mustard and franks red hot wing sauce this time because I wanted to make something spicy that wasn't as guilty as wings.. yummy can't wait to eat it, the pickings from the oven taste great so far.

My mom used to make this for me as a kid. It's so much better than Chex mix! The only thing I change from the original recipe is that I add about 1 cup Cheez-Its to the mix and take out a little of the cereal. I highly recommend it!

I've been using this recipe for years. I love the flavor -- better than Chex Mix!
