Mom's Party Mix

READY IN: 1hr 3mins
Recipe by CindiJ

This is our family recipe that Mom started making back in the 50's. We laugh now because Chex cereals don't come in "small boxes" anymore so we guessed to keep up with the times. This is a great Christmas tradition with our family. *Edited to reduce sodium and a tip from another Zaarian (change the flavored salts to powers).

This is the original. I am nearly 65 and this is exactly what my mother made while I was in grade school. Thanks for sharing.
