Nuts and Bolts

Kimberly Biegacki


This is a little more work than most of the other Chex Mix recipes but it's the one I know. I love all these spices, especially Beau Monde it is one of my favorite spice blends. This is a very flavorful nuts & bolts. You'll be sure to make it year after year for your family & friends.

I wish I would of taken pics when my nephew Noah was helping me fill the bags.
