Twenty Five Days of Treats - Day 19 and Princess Makes It Monday

Something fun and snacky - great for parties, for eating while watching It's a Wonderful Life, or for putting in jars to give to friends.

This holiday favorite has been around for years.  The good news is, now you can have it AND eat gluten free, too!  Our recipe is based on a recipe on the side of the Rice Chex box.

SPH Chex Mix
9 x 13 pan
Fill it about 1/3 full with Rice Chex, 1/3 full with Corn Chex, and add hefty dashes of pretzels (I use Glutino brand), peanuts - whatever else you like in your Chex Mix.

1 stick butter, melted
@1 T-ish chili powder
@1 t-ish garlic powder

Stir together, then pour over items in pan.  Stir gently to coat.  Bake at 250 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Now, my favorite add-on here is popcorn.  Yep, just plain buttered popcorn.  Add it to the Chex Mix AFTER everything else has baked.  It kind of tempers the spiciness.  Sadly, I was overruled when making this today :( .

Anyway, try it yourself - it's addictive!
