Parmesan Ranch Chex Mix

The last time I made Muddy Buddies, my husband was looking at the Chex Mix box and saw some of the recipes for savory Chex Mixes.  The next time a football game was on he decided to make one and experimented with making his own varieties over the next couple of weeks.  This Parmesan Ranch Chex Mix was by far our favorite and we have been making it for about every football game or party ever since then.
We always like the Chex Mix that you can get in the store, but there is something about making your own.  You can try many different types of varieties and add what other other snacks to the Chex that you like.  This has been a big hit, not only with our family, but with everyone that has tried the mix.  The Chex Mix has such great flavor and is a great snack.
The best part about this Chex Mix is that it is so easy to make.  This can literally be made in a matter of minutes.  This would be a great snack to have while watching the Superbowl or any sporting event. The ranch and parmesan flavor is great, and I really like the cheesy flavor of the Chex Mix.  This Parmesan Ranch Chex Mix is great if you need a quick, tasty snack!
