A chex mix with a kick is always a handy snack/appetizer to have on hand at a party. For ShOTT of Espresso's 1st Birthday we went with a Little Boy Blue theme so I called it a "Hot Horn Hybrid." You can adjust the amount of hot sauce you use in this recipe to turn up the heat as much as you desire.
I used Bugles instead of the traditional chex shapes since they look like little horns and called it a hybrid instead of a mix since that sounded a little more farm like. I threw in some blue colored M&M's and dehydrated blueberries to match our party colors and served it in a bowl lined with a navy blue bandanna.

3.) Pour sauce over bugle mix and stir till coated.
