My husband's family loves traditional Chex Party Mix which is a favorite at our Thanksmas celebration every year. My husband was craving something sweeter and asked for Maple Chex mix instead. I tried the only recipe I could find online but wasn't completely pleased with the results since the recipe really didn't coat the chex very well. I made a few changes to increase the coating. Very rich, very yummy. Definitely not for those on a diet.
