Our favorite Chex Mix is old fashioned, but it's our favorite. We have carried this one on trips in Ziplock bags (sizes snack to gallon size, depending on the children's age at the time!), given these in tins, quart jars, special dollar store or Sam's Club special containers for the holidays and even made some in the summertime once in a blue moon just because! Always made between the day before or on Thanksgiving Day, this is a holiday kick starter at our home! My youngest son's eyes light up and I become the "best mom in the world" as those cake pans of precious cereal and pretzels come out of the oven! Folks, it's the little traditions we create annually that win out in the memories of our children! Make it special whatever it is that you do! Be counted on!

Growing up in the 1960's we didn't have a lot of money, but we had each other. We spent countless hours making home created gifts to gift family and friends. Hot cocoa, special family favorite Christmas cookies, fruit cake, and gifts that we uniquely made ourselves from things we had available at the house or on grandma and grandpa's farm (roasted nuts, cider we had pressed in the fall, etc).My mom made a hot chocolate recipe that was in her AORN Nursing Cook Book that she had me help compile and type the submitted recipes from all the nurses in her AORN group to create this fundraiser cookbook filled with delicious recipes (the typewriter at that time was manual - oh the memories!). The original recipe here has been adapted. This recipe was the family favorite and included Nestle Quik instead of Hershey's Chocolate and has been a solid favorite every winter for our family and friends alike.
