Cook's Tips: Corn or rice cereal squares can be used in this recipe, but we
prefer cereal with corn on one side and rice on the other. You can substitute 2
cups corn chips for pretzels, if you like.
For easy entertaining, make this snack mix the day before your get-together and
store it in an airtight container at room temperature.
