    This is the best savory Chex mix recipe!! I replace the shred wheat with Wheat Chex and use a little extra cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper to add more heat. It gets raves every time I make it. It's my Christmas giveaway rather than cookies and my friends look forward to it every year.

    This is fantastic! I like that it is easily adaptable to the cereal and snack crackers you have on hand. The maple syrup adds an interesting twist compared to other snack mixes I’ve tried. Definitely will be a holiday tradition at our house for years to come. I am a Volunteer Field Editor and enjoy trying out and reviewing recipes!

    I make this every Christmas and everyone loves it! I do like a little less of some things and more of others (Bugles and Pecans) so I make it my way...:). Try this and you will love it!

    This snack mix is one my family simply loves and one we'll be making many more times. It's so good, it vanishes so fast we make it times three to keep it in stock. It's delicious and one we'll be making many more times.
