I use Crispex cereal because it both rice and corn Chex so I only have to buy one box to make the mix. I also have increased the 'sauce' by about 50% compared to the original Chex Mix recipe for a little added zip. We have come to prefer double seasoning. Those amounts are in the parenthesis.
- Combine melted butter, seasoned salt and Worcestershire sauce.
- Place cereal, nuts and pretzels in a roasting pan.
- Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture stirring constantly to coat.
- Place in preheated 250°F oven and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
- Cool and store in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag.
Our partygoers liked this mix. I used the increased amounts of sauce, and also added 1/2 tsp. each of garlic and onion powder. I also used half Crispix and half Oat squares. You can also try different kinds of pretzels, or flavored pretzels. I also added toasted sunflower seeds. Thank you, Marg.
I have been making this for years too & here are some additions that might help for those that thought it needed something more. 1 Tsp garlic powder, sub about 1/2 of the butter for bacon grease, and (i know this sounds weird) but about 1 tsp of poultry seasoning. This should really add a nice zip!
I hate to be the only one not into this... but I thought it just tasted like butter. I used the extra sauce amounts, and all I could taste was butter and salt. I'll probably just stick to the recipe on the back of the box from now on.
