"This four-ingredient combination is a great change of pace from typical snack mixes," writes Sharon Mensing of Greenfield, Iowa. And it's a good thing the crispy treat is so simple to throw together. After one handful, your family will empty the bowl in no time.

Tasted like chex with chili powder. Which, I guess, it essentially is. Thank goodness I tried it at home before I took it to our family reunion. Will not make again.
