Delish! If you love salty snacks this is a super easy and zesty recipe to wow with. I was hesitant about the rosemary but it adds the twist that makes this way better than a typical Chex mix. I increased the receipe by 4x and it still didn't make what I think I'll need for the party--especially since it's so good! Make extra and plan ahead since this bakes for a long time.
