Cheerios Party Snack

Many years ago, my mother clipped this recipe off a Cheerios box. I have never seen it on a box since, but it has been passed down and continues to be a favorite of ours.  Try this simple Party Mix recipe and see for your self if it is not a winner.  Chex cereal can be substituted if you increase the butter and spices as the Chex tends to absorb a lot of it.

We make a ton of this every year.  I quadruple the recipe, then make three batches of the quadrupled batch.  By the time Christmas is past, we are ready to give it up until the next year.
