Handmade Holidays: Vegetarian Chex Mix

vegetarin chex cereal mix

Mr. Indie Fixx loves homemade Chex Mix…or at least my vegetarian version of it. Other recipes that use Worcestershire Sauce are not okay for vegetarians as Worcestershire Sauce contains anchovies, just to let you know.

I plan on making loads for homemade gifts this year, since everyone loves it when I serve it at parties. You might also want to read Shrie’s post on 14 Homemade Food Gifts if you are looking for food gift ideas.
