I’m here today to share the least original content of all time – a Chex mix recipe!
I’m not sure why, but my family only ever makes Chex mix at Christmas time. That just makes it all the more special since we only make and eat it once a year. Obviously there’s a Chex mix recipe on the side of any Chex cereal box, and you can buy the pre-made stuff at the store, but I love to make my own.
I like to deviate from the standard recipe, by cutting out the bagel chips and adding Cheerios and pecans, and upping the amount of seasoning. But of course the great thing about a recipe like this is that you can adjust it to your taste!
- 6 c. Corn Chex™
- 6 c. Rice Chex ™
- 6 c. Wheat Chex™
- 3 c. Cheerios™
- 2 ½ c. unsalted peanuts
- 3 c. chopped pecans
- 2 c. stick pretzels
- 18 T. butter
- 6 T. Worcestershire sauce
- 4 ½ tsp. seasoned salt
- 2 ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- 1 ½ tsp. onion powder
- Pre-heat oven to 300°F.
- Combine butter and seasonings in a microwavable bowl or measuring cup; Cover and microwave for two minutes, pausing every 30 seconds to stir.
- In a very large oven safe container (ideally it will be fairly shallow), mix pretzels, nuts, and cereals, stirring to combine.
- Bake cereal for 1 ½ hours, removing and stirring it every 15 minutes.
Note: This recipe is adapted from the classic Chex™ Mix Recipe.
