I made you a snack, and it is a good one!
Now I know you can just go buy a pre-made bag of Chex Mix at the store, but I am telling you this classic homemade version is WAY better!
I love mixed nuts, cheesy crackers and pretzel sticks in my Chex mix, but you feel free to add whatever you like to your mix, just peanuts or curly pretzels or bagel chips… you do what you like, no one is the boss of your Chex Mix!
What you need,
3 cups each of Rice, Corn & Wheat Chex Cereal
(I couldn’t find corn and wheat Chex so I used Life and Crispix, both tasted great!)
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup pretzel sticks
1 cup goldfish or other cheese crackers
6 tablespoons of butter, melted
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ tsp. seasoning salt
¾ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. onion powder
Heat the oven to 250 degrees.
In a very large bowl, mix all 3 cereals with the nuts, pretzels and crackers.
Add the spices to the melted butter and stir to combine.
Pour the butter mixture over the cereal mixture and toss gently to coat everything well.
Pour the chex mix onto a large sheet pan and spread out into a thin layer.
Bake for 50mins to 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes until golden and toasted!
Cool completely and then store in airtight containers.
You don’t have to worry too much about how you store it because it isn’t going to last long, seriously this stuff is super addictive.
This is such a great snack to whip up for a summer barbecue or a weekend away with friends. Plus it is a Christmas snack classic!
Make some this weekend, you won’t be sorry!
