Let's talk about Chex mix for a minute. It isn't just for parties. In fact, it's one of the things my kids love making the most and we often make it on rainy afternoons as an easy but special snack. It's not a hard thing to make and really most of the time, you're simply waiting for it to come out of the oven. And boy, does it smell good while it's baking.
Now, in our house, we've made all kinds of Chex mix. Sometimes we use Ranch Dressing, other times we do a more traditional Chex mix. But this time, I wanted to try something a little different.
A bit more sophisticated (although, I'm not sure how sophisticated you can get when you throw Goldfish crackers into the mix). I decided to go with a flavor combination that involved Old Bay Seasoning.
I tend to throw Old Bay on just about anything including baked sweet potato fries and my Kale Chips Recipe. It happens to be one of my favorite flavors. Plus, it always reminds me of summer.
This Old Bay Chex Mix is a little something for the grown ups. It has some spice and heat and complexity of flavor that will keep you and your friends very happy. Serve it at a party or just dig into it yourself while enjoying a beautiful warm summer night - and perhaps a cold beer. Just saying.
