one of my favorite things to make during the holidays is Chex mix. I like to giveit as a gift and snack on it myself. It's easy and fun to make and a good activity to do with the kids and you can pimp it out however you want (like pimp my ride?).
In fact, I have some roasting in the oven right now. I have my own special mix that includes:
Puffed wheat (an addition from Jason's Grandmother...it is so good because it soaks up the juices)
I don't like nuts so that's why I substitute the other ingredients. oh, and I also like quadruple the sauce ingredients so that there is enough to really drench it.
