Chex mix is such a great snack, especially for the kids. The orginal chex mix bag that you buy does have dairy warnings on the label, so a while back I found this recipe and was so excited to make my own dairy free. When I was living in Utah I actually borrowed the equipment from the cannery, made huge batches of this stuff and canned them in #10 size cans. Just in time for the super bowl- enjoy!
