This recipe comes from an old boyfriend's mom when I was in college. A slight twist to the traditional Chex Party mix recipe.

I love this recipe, make it most years for Xmas, but I usually add a spoon of curry powder for bite. Sometime I use a little garlic-chilli sauce, either way it is a pleaser, especially with beer drinkers!!! and there are lots of those in Australia!!
