Chex – Mix

 

School will be starting soon and even though I don’t have any school aged children anymore I thought I’d post this as my grown daughters and son-in-law love to snack on this. It’s also great around the holidays to keep around when there’s family lingering in your kitchen.

This is the full recipe however I often make half since it does make a lot. It keeps well in a air-tight container for about three weeks.

I used to go to two different stores to get the preferred cheese crackers and pretzel sticks but I’ve recently noticed that they are both carried at Walmart. And if you have a cracker or pretzel that you like better – that’s ok too. This recipe is adaptable to taste. I’ve seen some recipes that call for hot sauce {Tabasco, etc.} I don’t put it in mine. But feel free to add a couple of dashes if that’s to your taste. I won’t be in your kitchen looking over your shoulder so have at it!

  • 2 shakes Garlic powder
  • 2 T. Chili powder
  • 1 t. Season salt

Instructions

  1. Put the butter and the Worcesteshire suace in a microwave bowl and heat until just melted but not boiling.

  2. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix well.

  3. Combine the Chex, nuts, pretzels and crackers evenly on two rimmed baking sheets.

  6. Take out of oven - stir ingredients and allow to cool. Don't eat all of it before you can share.

Recipe Notes

**Take the pans out of the oven every 15-20 min. and stir the ingredients. I Rotate the pans and switch up which rack they are on when I take them out to be stirred. Don't really know if that makes a difference but I think it helps it toast more evenly.
