Add Something New To The Mix
(NAPSA) - Add a little something new to "the Mix." Stir together new versions of this family favorite snack to serve when you entertain friends and family. Or pack your special recipe in a unique container to give as a gift.
For a festive flair with the tart flavor of cranberries, try the Holiday Mix. Young Chex Mix eaters will enjoy Horns & Drums. A fun-shaped snack replaces the nuts in this version and microwave directions make it easier for kid cooks to help in the kitchen.

Holiday Mix: Use pretzels in holiday shapes and stir in 1 cup dried cranberries before serving.
Horns & Drums: Omit nuts. Use pretzel sticks and bagel chips to resemble "drums and drumsticks." Stir in 1 cup Bugles snack for the "horns."
