I added approximately 5 cups of Chex cereal to the mix and didn't change any of the other amounts and it was great.

This snack mix is amazing...absolutely delicious and addicting! I have made this many, many times. For other occasions (such as a baby shower or Christmas), I omitted the candy corn and substituted seasonal M&Ms - such as pastel colors or red & green.
