This chex mix is a sweet treat. Its more like poppycock rather than chex mix. But I made it and served it at a kid friendly party I had with some friends. Everyone loved it even and especially the adults! I made it in a disposable turkey roaster and put it in the oven instead of the microwave. I couldn't find chocolate chex mix so I added m&m's and threw marshmallows in it as well. I've had a few people ask me for this recipe since then. I'll definetly be making it again!

Making it as a Christmas munchie. Followed the directions exactly,but I couldn't find chocolate chex so I used Honey Nut instead. This is a keeper!

Very good, quick and easy to make gluten free (swap rice, cinnamon or honey nut chex for the wheat chex and leave out the cheese crackers). Also, if you want a laugh, change the quantity to 15 servings and it calls for 43 cups of chocolate chex! Wow!!! LOL!

interesting snacking... it didn't last long. Had to sub some kinds of cereal as we don't have some of the suggested kinds in Canada. Used shreddies, chocolate mini shredded wheat, crispix.

Very good and easy! Love the sweet & salty combo. I did add about a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce to the sugar sauce and I think it was a great subtle addition.
