Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this original recipe. There are a lot of recipes floating around out there that claim to be the original recipe, but all have pretzels and bagel chips, and I know for a fact that those were not in my Grandma's Chex Mix.

I absolutely love Chex Mix. My mom make a huge batch around the holidays and I eat a big bowl every night for a week for as long as it lasts.
