chex mix finished

One day, Captain Cavedweller decided we were going to be adventurous and make Chex Mix. (Yep, we really walk on the wild side of life.)

With no Chex Mix making experience to draw from, we thought it would be difficult and challenging.

Turns out it is really easy.

And good.

And quite tasty.

And hard to stop eating when warm and fresh.

I may have liked it so much, we made three different kinds the same day.
