I found this recipe in a cookbook from 1979 called "A Collection of the Very Finest Recipes ever assembled into one Cookbook." I haven't tried it yet but it sounded interesting. Let me know what you think!

This is the classic "back-of-the-box" Chex Mix, and it is the ONE thing I can NOT keep around, because I am utterly helplessly in love with it, and will happily eat the entire batch. I never make it the same way twice---sometimes I throw in Tabasco sauce, sometimes some taco seasoning, or go "healthy" and sub olive oil for butter---it's fabulous any way you vary it!
