"My mix is based on a recipe that my childhood best friend's mother, Mrs. Harper, had for Chex Mix. It became an annual ritual for me to call her to ask for the recipe yet again. :) This mix is so very, very yummy and decadent! Good thing I only make it once a year..."

"Hello, i was reading this recipe. Let me tell you, i didn't get past step number 2 before i was running out the door to buy the ingredients for this recipe. Because the cereals that are needed for this recipe were not on sale, i kinda skimped on the cereal. i used crispix and muilti-grain cheerios. Also, i think the cashew pieces get lost in the sea of chex mix. Maybe next time i'll use whole cashews. i also doubled the seasoning mix and i didnt have celery salt, so i used celery seed instead and added a bit more seasoning salt"
"Oh my goodness this is really good. I made a double batch for us to take on vacation. We had both bag finished by the second day. I've made it couple more times since. This is the best chex mix I've ever had."
"We made this and I think it was gone within a day! We left out the sage and Tabasco sauce. It obviously wasn't missed seeing how fast is disappeared! A absolute must have for any holiday party!"
"This is the absolute best!!! I even double the seasonings for a bolder flavor. WOW! I've made this several times and have added grated parmesean cheese to the top after I put the mix on the baking sheets. It just adds another texture. Any thing you add to it would be great. Also i have searched everywhere for bagel chip and have yet to find just the chips. Thanks for posting!"
"I can't believe that I've never posted a review! Since you posted this recipe, it has become a holiday tradition at our house too! This is absolutely the BEST Chex Mix recipe that I've tried, and I've tried a lot of them! Thank you so much for taking the time to post it all those years ago!"
"I brought this to work today and it was gone in less than 2 hours (we only have about 15 people in our office and this made a TON so I was expecting leftovers but I guess not!!). I received lots of compliments and recipe requests. Thanks for a fun, new twist on one of my favorites!!! It's a super easy, delicious recipe for a hungry crowd - I will be making it for a tailgate soon!"
"Just finished making this. Wow! I'm gnoshing on it still warm. I didn't have the celery salt, so I used some extra Lowery's after it was done cooking. I also used chipotle Tabasco. I will make this again. BE WARNED!!! You will have to think about where to put all this. This recipe makes a ton. My friends will be happy when I show up with bags full of the stuff."
"This mix was outstanding. I think my bacon must've been a little fattier than some, because the first batch I made I could taste the bacon grease just a little stronger than I would have liked. The second batch I cut it back a little. On the second batch I also used Crispix instead of some of the Chex (ran out)I also accidentally used Honey Nut cheerios but I actually think the little bit of sweetness it added was really good and I might just do it this way intentionally next time, it made a really nice sweet and salty kind of combo."
"This is the BEST chex mix I have made. made it for a gift and found the tabasco really gives it a kick along with the bacon grease!!!"
"Simply THE BEST! I used seasoned salt and Luisana hot sauce for seasoning. Didn't find Wheat Chex at the grocery store, so replaced it with whole grains. It yielded four full jar of Chex Mix for me. Absolutely wonderful. I will make this again and again! Thank you for the recipe!"
"Back to make this a second time. DH loved this!"
"I did not bother to taste this first as I was in a hurry..... mistate #1 !! This was the WORST recipe I have ever taken to a function and it ended up in the garbage !!! We all ended up making a joke about it, as it was SO BAD. My friends are used to me bringing several different kinds of GOOD Chex Mixes and they thought this was a joke at first. So I promised NEVER to do it again, and suggest no one waste the time !!! It does not even rate a star in my book."
"Amazing. Perfect. Thank you so much!!! Did not change a thing, makes plenty for a party, saved and will make again and again!!!"
"This was a extra special chex mix. The bacon grease really did put some flavor into it. My family really did enjoy it. Thanks for posting this recipe."
"I made these for a Superbowl party and it was very tasty."
"This is good. I would have given it 5 stars had there been more juice. Iike my mix a bit more strong. I will try it again and re-review if it works better. I followed this as written. No changes to the recipe."
"MMMM-MMMMMMM. Just like mom used to make only better! I love the addition of the goldfish and cheerios. I took this to sons wrestling meet and everyone around me was munching on it all day. I will definately be making this again for various occasions. Thank you for this tasty and easy recipe."
"I must have done something wrong to this recipe, and therefore, I am not giving it a rating. I had high hopes for this mix, as the bacon drippings sounded like the key to a successful snack. However, the snack mix had a burnt bacon flavoring (even though I didn't get anywhere near burning the bacon) and a very unpleasant taste. I made this for our get-together in the mountains for New Year's and I ended up throwing out the entire batch. I don't know what went wrong, but I really wanted to like it!"
"Excellent! Next time I will add some cayenne pepper just to make it a little hotter, but we loved this. Thanks!"
"very good. I like that the flavoring doesn't overpower everything else and you can still detect the taste of the original mix "component". I made it for a car trip and it really did the job of chasing away the munchies (although we ended up gorging ourselves on it, LOL). Will definately be making these again. Thanks for posting!"
