Makes 10 cups snack mix.
- Allow the BBQ Chex mix to cool completely before serving. As it cools it will get nice and crispy.
- If you like your snacks on the spicy side, add in a little more cayenne.
- Use two baking sheets for this recipe rather than piling the Chex mix on to one. They'll cook more evenly this way.
