I make this spicy hot party mix during the holidays when it is cold out. It really warms you up.

  • Combine corn cereal squares, wheat cereal squares, and pretzels in a large oven-safe bowl or roasting pan. Drizzle the sauce over the mix with a spoon, stirring frequently, until well coated.

Very tasty and hard not to eat too much! Spice lovers will really enjoy this! I just wish there was more variety in the mix but that is easily customizable. I did appreciate there not being any peanuts since that is always my least favorite part of chex mix! I used pretzel sticks instead of mini pretzels because that's what I had on hand. I also baked the mix at 230F instead of 250F because my oven tends to run a little hot. I also only baked it for about 50 minutes instead of 1h15 and the mix was perfectly browned. Next time I might cut back a bit on the seasoning salt since it was a little salty. Read More
