Notes

Chex Mix Variations
For the Chex Mix Base (7 cups) - Use a combination of any type of Chex cereal you'd like to equal 7 cups - Corn, Rice, Honey Nut, or Wheat. Try replacing 1 cup of the Chex with Cheerios.
Crackers and/or Pretzels (2 cups) - Reduce or eliminate the pretzels and replace them with the same amount of cheese crackers, bagel chips, oyster crackers, Bugles, or corn chips.
Nuts (1 cup) - Use a combination of your favorite nuts. Cashews, macadamia nuts, pistachios, and almonds are all delicious. Honey roasted peanuts will add a sweet element.
Storage
Transfer the cooled mixture to a gallon size zippered plastic storage bag. Press out as much air as possible and seal the bag. Homemade Chex Mix will stay fresh for 2 to 3 weeks if stored in an airtight container at room temperature. For longer storage you can freeze it for up to 3 to 4 months.
