The holiday season is upon us

Ryan and I went down to Target today and the holiday season is in full swing. Their Christmas section is pretty amazing. 4 foot long candy canes filled with chocolates and tins of chocolate dipped cookies anyone? I think I brought back 10lbs of butter and I’m pretty sure I’ll go through it all by the end of the year. I also thought I’d share my favourite festive recipe that does NOT involve sugar (but lots of butter). Chex Mix!!!
The original with worcester, garlic powder and onion powder is my favourite but there are a ton of variations including a chocolate peanut butter one which can all be found here: http://www.chex.com/Recipes/Recipes.aspx
Homemade chex mix is completely different and much less salty than the pre-bagged stuff they sell.
My favourite version is from The Pioneer Woman (also my favourite blog) http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/12/pws_chex_party_mix/
