I’m one of those freaks who doesn’t really love sweets. I mean, I eat sweets and will absolutely snag a donut or brownie if its near me, but it’s not hard for me to say no to the dessert menu. My downfall is with the salty and carb categories. Breads, butters, cheeses, bagels, crackers … bring it on. It’s literally a problem.
My latest salty obsession is homemade Chex Mix. Today, I’m majorly craving this salty snack but I can’t make it because I have zero self control. Danny tries to ration it for me but it just doesn’t work. Its pretty embarrassing when your husband finds you in a dark kitchen sneaking just one more bite before bed – bad, bad, bad. “Hi, I’m Teri and I’m addicted to homemade Chex Mix.”
So, if you’re a salt lover like me give this delish snack recipe a whirl. But consider yourself warned :: its highly addictive.
