Picture of Chex hack
When I quit smoking I merely switched my addiction, I was eating a bag of hard candy every 2 days or so and boxes of cheese crackers a week,  I especially liked to mix the white cheddar and the hot versions and eat them while watching tv or reading at night with the to be expected result that I put on nearly 70lbs in 13 months ! Most of the alternatives I found were to bland for my taste so I decided to create my own, I've made several versions by varying the seasonings and types or use of hard cheese

I added all the spices and the hard cheese together in a cup, poured the chex cereal in a large bowl and sprayed it with the oil spray, then I sprinkled the spice combination over the cereal and stirred it, repeating until I had used all the spices and the cereal looked well coated

Step 3: Bake and save

I spread the cereal on a perforated rack and baked at 350f for about 15 minutes until I started to smell it cooking, then I removed the tray and allowed the cereal to cool before transferring to a plastic bag.

 The cereal has a slight sweetness to it that underlies the complexity of the spices, I almost don't miss my cheese crackers..... almost.......

Looks delicious! :)

That looks pretty good. I'm going to have to try this. Thanks for sharing!

seolfor, thank you for commenting. They are very good, maybe not as good as the cheese crackers but a close 2nd, lol, it's easily adaptable by changing the spices around and manipulating the amounts to your tastes
