I couldn't find chocolate chex so I used rice as some other reviews stated. I found this to be very boring. Maybe it would be better with the chocolate chex.

Love this stuff. I could not find chocolate chex so I used a combination of corn, rice and wheat. I also added 2 cups of pecans and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Next time I will add a full teaspoon...
