Fancy Chex Mix

I love Chex Mix, but I don’t love some of the ingredients, so I came up with my Fancy Chex Mix recipe with only ingredients that I love. You are welcome to substitute with ingredients that you like (just substitute cup for cup so that you will have the right amount of seasoning for your Chex mix). Baby Goldfish crackers, roasted and salted Pepitas (pumpkin seeds), dry roasted peanuts or sunflower seeds, and tiny pretzels are just a few suggestions for your fancy Chex mix.
