I love to make Chex mix for road trips and the holidays. This recipe is one of my go-tos. I originally found this recipe via Half Baked Harvest (she is my favorite) and I have made several changes to suit our spicy taste! It is slightly spicy and zesty and so delicious. Beware it is addictive!! I have a hard time restraining myself with this mix. You can honestly do any ratio of the Chex Mix and crackers. We don’t like pretzels so I never add in pretzels but feel free to if you love them! I love the combo of cheez-its and goldfish. I use mixed nuts but again any nuts will work. These little containers are perfect to put the mix in as little neighbor gifts!
I used my Walmart+ membership for all these ingredients which made it super easy with unlimited free delivery! Walmart grocery is the BEST! They have such huge selection and always have what I need for my recipes! Walmart+ is especially great for the holidays if you forget an ingredient or think of a last minute addition to your party menu you can get unlimited free delivery on your groceries ($35 order minimum, some restrictions apply).
