agree that this is a nice alternative to traditional chex mix. I too added approximately 1 tsp cayenne. Read More

Would probably give this 4.5 stars if I could refine my rating to that degree. Added 3/4 teaspoon cayenne paper & subbed peanuts for the pistachios. Nice mild seasoned flavor with a little kick...would recommend to anyone bored with the routine Chex mix recipes & wanting to try something new! Read More

I made this for a Halloween party and it was great! I used garam masala instead of cardamom. The garam masala I used is a mixture of black pepper cardamom cinnamon cumin coriander and other indian spices. I think this gave it a more complex flavor than straight cardamom. Also I used 1/2 tsp of cayenne and there was plenty of heat. Read More

Love this mix! So different: with ingredients listed almost a hint of citrus flavor (I am not good with descriptors). It finishes off with a slight warmth of cayenne after eating. Not too hot. Love this adult tasting chex mix! My fav although my kids love the chex mix with cherry recipe. Still... easy and will make again! PS-I have made a chinese 5 spice chex mix before & I really love this one better. Read More

This was a nice change from the regular chex mix. I didn't add as much cayenne but added a little more salt. It was very tasty. Read More

Loved this recipe! I did switch to Garam Masala (one of my favorite spice mixes from Penzey's) and I may have added a bit more cayenne-it was hard to see when I was giving a shake. I took it to a potluck and brought home enough to take to work today but enough was gone that I know people tried it-potlucks always have so much food! Such a nice switch from the salty Chex mix that I grew up hating. Read More

This is a really unique version of the traditional Chex Mix! My family ate it up like it was candy! I will definitely be using this for future parties and maybe even wrapped up as a creative gift. Read More

Didn't have the cardamon so did a combo of cinnamon allspice nutmeg clove. It was a wonderful twist on an old favorite. Read More
