Some things are a tradition at the Berg house around Christmas time. One of those, is having Chex Mix on hand. My husband, Mike, loves to snack on Chex Mix, and so we bake it all month long.
Here is the original Chex Mix recipe, and a sweet twist on it. And you can find a TON OF CHEX MIX recipes at Chex.com
