I know everyone has this recipe but I am posting it to put in a cookbook I am making of my Mom's recipes.

I believe this is the original recipe from the back of Chex Cereal back in the 1960's. But it is hard to tell from Mom's recipes. She added and changed things over the years. But this is the version of the recipe she used.
