Tanya's Sweet Chex Mix

"Went to an alphabet pot luck tonight where everyone signed up to bring a dish that started with a particular letter of the alphabet. Of all the dishes (and there were lots of yummy ones), this was my favorite. I decided to name it after my friend's sweet daughter that made it."

    I made this last night for a Christmas carry-in. It is so good. I could set and eat it for hours. I used Rice Chex, Corn Chex and toasted, salted almonds. Yum! I am adding it to my personal recipe book. Thanks for sharing.

    Spectacular! I used rice and wheat Chex, Pops and about 2 cups of slightly pre-roasted almonds, it was perfect, But I will so add pretzel sticks next time for the bit of salty. I have to admit I added about 1tsp. of Imitation Maple and am planning on trying cinammon eventually. Thank you Sharlene, we love it.

    I halved the recipe and used dark golden syrup, which worked out fine. Delicious snack for my daughter. Thanks Sharlene! Roxygirl
