Who likes the old favorite Party Mix? I love this salty treat made from Rice, Corn and Wheat Chex, but three cereals add up. My mother came up with this idea during the 90s recession. On years when money is tight, use the cereal (Kellogg's makes it, I think) that has rice on one side and corn on the other. It's not quite the same as the original Party Mix, but it's still good! I have made the mix using the corn/rice cereal and a box of Wheat Mix and I have left the Wheat Mix out. This year is definitely an outie! Follow the directions for the original Party Mix. Let me know if anyone needs the recipe.

Crispix! I've used that too.
I also use the store brand version of Chex

I bought 3 boxes of the generic store bought and made mne the other day. Absolutely no different than the costly Kelloggs brand, and I saved about 3 bucks or more!

Crisipix -- thanks! I saw this the other day and couldn't remember the name. I'll make the mix Monday. If I make it too far ahead of time it disappears -- mainly because of me!

OK now a question - who all does this in the oven and who all makes it in the microwave?

I use the oven for 3 reasons -- that's the way my Mom made it, I like smelling up the house this way, and I'm suspicious that the microwave way just won't make it crunchy enough.

Oh, and a 4th reason -- I can't make a big enough batch in the microwave

Great question! I forgot about the microwave option because I've never even considered it. I use the oven for same reasons you and Granny's Roost do. I can't wait to smell it tomorrow!

Bought the ingredients and couldn't stand looking at them in the cabinet, so I whipped up the first batch and just took it out of the oven. The smell is so yummy! I'm mixing up the cheese straw/ wafer dough next and will bake them tomorrow.
