i try, and i fail

spicy chex mix

my mom makes the best spicy chex mix. one summer after 7th grade i lived off of her spicy chex mix and popsicles. i considered it a healthy diet.
yesterday i tried again, and it turned out alright. there are only a couple of bites left, so i consider it a success, but it wasn’t amazing.
regular ol’ homemade spicy chex mix isn’t even vegetarian, so this stuff was vegetarian-ized and vegan-ized. to replace the worcestershire (which has anchovies) i used some vegan stuff we picked up at whole foods. there are a couple of different brands out there, i like the one with the wizard on it! there are also recipes you can find online. and then to vegan-ize it i just replaced the butter with earth balance.
i’m going to try to make some more this weekend, and maybe it will go better.

    Check labels. I don’t remember where I got mine from, but we found a brand that’s vegan.

    I was so devastated when I realized that Worcestershire sauce contains anchovies! Good luck perfecting your recipe. :)
