Fun Fact: Considered a holiday staple in many American homes, homemade snack mixes have been around for more than fifty years. The original "Chex Mix" recipe hit the party circuit in 1955. When you have some cereal that has been opened for awhile, there’s your incentive for making a snack mix! The yummy variations just keep getting yummier.
