    This is the recipe that was on the Chex cereal box with a few additions, when I was a child. I hope you like it as much as I do. I seem to make it every year around Christmas time, so Cheers!

      Quick tip: I put the seasoning "sauce" in an oil shaker (like for salad dressing) and shake it over the mix a little at a time, stirring the dry mix between shakes. I get a much more even distribution that way.

      here are a few variations that seem to be good with this. Instead of using pretzels one time i used Pretzel balls or goldfish pretzels, they seem to be a bit lighter. Also to jazz up the flavor, you can also add a few dashes of onion powder and garlic power. Hope this helps! Also, Lawary's just came out with a 25% less sodium seaning salt. i used this and the orginal and it still tasted GREAT! (so there is a sodium alternative for those watching salt intake).

      This is my favorite, the old original. I add another 2 cups of chex, a whole can of mixed nuts and a bag of pretzel sticks.
