I decided to play around with a Chex Mix recipe one day and came up with this. It's seriously good. I rarely share recipes, but this one is so good that I have to pass it on. I made the mistake of shipping a batch to my husband and some of his fellow soldiers while he was deployed. I learned all about supply and demand after that. I had to make double and triple batches and they still ate it faster than I could make it! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! It's a definite keeper!

I don't use a candy thermometer and I pretty much eyeball everything so if you have a question, let me know!

NOTE: This makes a HUGE batch of Chex mix! It can be halved with no problems. Also, maple extract is pretty potent! If you'd like a stronger maple flavor, you can increase to 3/4 teaspoon.
