We didn't really go for this, too much parmesan or something. Sorry

What an excellent and quick way for chex mix! The flavor is more bland than the original but also has less fat! Thank you for sharing!

These turned out tasty, though I had distribution problems and the bag got gloppy (I know, not a real word but it fits so nicely). I would make this again, but next time would probably mix in a large bowl and then transfer to a large zip lock bag. I really appreciate this recipe as I like chex mix, but hate the fat, sodium and unnatural ingredients in the boxed stuff. The ranch mix itself is probably not that healthy, but I used all multigrain, organic and natural ingredients for the rest of it. Thank for sharing, we enjoyed snacking on this during our recent road trip.
