Tasty Tuesday – Homemade Chex Mix

I love this festive snack foods. This is the Chex mix recipe from the back of the box but then it has been changed slightly courtesy of love.life.laughter
ingredients
4 cups of corn chex
4 cups of wheat chex
4 cups of rice chex
2 cups of mixed nuts
2 cups of pretzels
2 cups of garlic flavored bagel chips broken up
2 cups of regular flavor cheerios (sometimes i add these too they are optional)
16 tablespoons of butter (2 sticks)
4 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce (maybe more)
1 1/2 teaspoons of season salt (my favorite is tastefully simple)
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon of onion powder
method
1. in a very large bowl, mix cereals, nuts, pretzels and bagel chips. in a secondary small microwaveable bowl melt butter for about one minute or until melted. Stir in all seasonings well. Pour over dry mixture and ensure an even coating. i use my hands to fold and toss the cereal. it will seem wet and maybe even some slightly soggy pieces but don’t worry it dries out in the oven roasting process.
2. you can microwave on high for 5-6 minutes in a microwave safe bowl stirring about every 2 minutes but i choose to roast ours in the oven. place the mix into 2 or 3 roasting pans or i also use shallow bar pans to make sure it all gets roasted. sprinkle each pan of mix with a little garlic powder on top. set oven temperature to 200-250 degrees bake for one hour stirring very 15 minutes. then lay out the chex mix on paper towels to cool before placing in an air tight container.

 

This would be the perfect addition to your New Year’s Eve Celebration…How about a gift for a hostess?  Add the mix to a Thirty One Creative Caddy (make sure it is in a bag) for an extra special gift…The creative caddy has four pockets plus one large open compartment fit school supplies, beauty products or small toys , snacks, etc. And it’s great for gifts – just don’t forget to personalize!
