Fall Chex Mix

Around the Barbee household, we always keep a mix of some sort for easy snacking. It might be traditional party chex mix, herbed ritz bits, or a surfer granola mix, but there is always something. These mixes are always easy to put together and easy to grab a handful when dinner isn't going to be ready for another hour or when the afternoon craving hits.

This isn't really a recipe, more of an idea, but it is a delicious idea. It is the perfect combination of salty and sweet and is easily adapted to fit your needs. I think this would be a perfect and easy hostess gift for any Halloween or Thanksgiving party. I am also sending this in a care package to a few students preparing for their finals, perfect brain food. Another good use for this chex mix would be to take it on a car ride!  It is easy to make in a big batch and then divide it into small zip locks for a special treat.
