Recipe by Babybuttons

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.
