Crispix Snacks Mix

Here's all the varieties of Crispix mix snacks I have, the Puppy Chow is the favorite of the kids of course, and they can make it themselves pretty much. I think the first time I heard of the Puppy Chow recipe was in the middle 1980's. So, it's popularity has withstood the test of time.

Some of these Crispex recipes you can do in the microwave, but I like the ones you do in the oven. Below you'll find the Puppy Chow Recipes, Sweet Minglers, Original Recipe, BBQ Style, Cinnamon Crispix, Nacho Crispex, Cheesy Pizza Crispix, Sweet Crispex, and Maple Crispex. Puppy Chow
