Disappointed Very disappointed in lack of flavor. Can't really taste almonds or chex. Can only taste pretzels and chocolate. The weight of first three ingredients is given which is nice. But they are also the ingredients that wold be easiest to measure by volume. The chocolate chips weight is not given and the amount is only given in tablespoons. Who ever heard of trying to measure chocolate chips in tablespoons?? How many chips can you get in a tablespoon measure? They are the most important to have the weight given but it isn't. Could get past that but there's a lot better chex mix recipes on chexmix.com. Pros: Only four ingredients Cons: Not much taste chocolate chips ingredient given in tablespoons Read More

This is the perfect busy woman's party food! I was grazing the site to find a semi-healthy quick delicious treat to take to a party the next day. Since I was working the night before and the morning of the party I needed a short ingredient list so I could get out of Walmart ASAP. Chocolate Crunch satisfies all of the above! One modification-I doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough for everyone especially since it truely is addictive. And instead of six tablespoons of chocolate I used about eight. Can't wait to show up with this modern twist of a classic chex mix! Read More

I am a huge chocolate covered pretzel fan. This recipe was a way for me to get my chocolate covered pretzel fix without having to dip the pretzels and there is added fiber from the cereal. Perfect snack food! Read More

A lady at my church makes this with White Chocolate and peanuts and it's addicting! Whenever our youth would take a trip she'd send a HUGE container along and it would be gone fast! Read More

This is delicious and I am not a huge chocolate fan! I made this last night for my bf as a sweet treat for him to have instead of ice cream and I couldn't stop eating it myself. Quick and easy! Read More
