Vanilla Sugar Cookie Chex Mix



I'm really not sure why . . .

but I love chex mix.

I like different kinds of chex mix.

Sure, the standard savory recipe is fine,

but I'm talking all the new-fandangled choices!

It's kind of crazy what flavor concoctions can be created!

Several weeks ago, I whipped this chex mix up

and in a matter of hours we had devoured it.

But if you do the math, you would realize that's not too hard to do!

6 cups of cereal.

4 people.

That equals 1 and 1/2 cups of cereal per person.

Over the course of the day, it's easy to consume that little of cereal.

Especially when it's covered with white chocolate.

And sugar.

Here, try it for yourself and see how long it lasts at your house!
