One our most favorite holiday treats is making our own chex mix. Only we take it up a notch. Can you say cayenne?
I made 5 quarts of this stuff the before Christmas. It was gone shortly thereafter.
So for those of you who can take some heat - I added 1 tablespoon of cayenne to each batch. I made the equivalent of four batches (all at once) so I added 4 tablespoons of the red stuff. I melt the butter in the microwave, add the cayenne and then pour over all the ingredients. I generally follow the recipe on the box of Chex but we add a few other goodies too ... Cheez-its, cashews, and Bugels.
Oh this is making me hungry ... I might need to turn up the heat in the kitchen ;-)
