  1. I’m not sure if it’s my browser, but the amount of Chex needed is not appearing. Other than that, I think this is a great recipe. I’ve just never heard of a 2 gallon ziploc bag, so I’m not sure how I would manage to pull that off.

    • Hi Bree! It calls for 9 cups (it makes a bunch!) Thanks for letting me know, I completely missed that …. hope that helps! 🙂
