I know for many this popular snack is a tradition for the holiday season, but I don't believe I have ever made the original recipe before. My mom did when I was little, circa 1968 and even at that time I knew I loved it because of the butter and salt and not necessarily because of the crunchy cereal.
This afternoon I most definitely had a craving for butter and worscestershire, with a splash of hot sauce, and the Chex provided the perfect vehicle to curb that craving. I added a few almonds, so I could pretend there was something healthy included in this dinner substitute, and then proceeded to eat a bowl of the delicious decadence.
Perhaps we will add this to the ever-growing list of Totoro traditional holiday foods...
