I don't think I've made homemade Chex Mix but maybe once in my life. My mom always made it for the holiday season. I made it with a friend once and we shared it between our families. We cheat a lot and buy the bagged kind. I decided recently that making my own would be a nice change. So, a few nights ago, I got busy and made a double batch. Teen14 walked in and asked, "Why would you want to make your own Chex mix?" and I had to age myself a bit and admit that you couldn't always just go buy it in a bag at the store. Chex Mix used to be a special treat for the holidays. Wow... one more way times have changed!
