Homemade Bold Chex Mix

My son loves the Bold Chex Mix available in the stores. He is a fan of onion, garlic and a little heat. This is one of the first snacks he will request. He recently asked if we could get some of this for his lunch, and I thought, I wonder if I can come up with a homemade version. I read the ingredients on the bag and came up with my shopping list. I then checked some other recipes from Chex and came up with this version. There is quite a bit of spice and heat. Be careful when stirring this while cooking as the fragrance is quite strong. It turns out my son loves this version. I hope you will enjoy it as well.
