Oh my goodness this is really good. I made a double batch for us to take on vacation. We had both bag finished by the second day. I've made it couple more times since. This is the best chex mix I've ever had.
We made this and I think it was gone within a day! We left out the sage and Tabasco sauce. It obviously wasn't missed seeing how fast is disappeared! A absolute must have for any holiday party!
Hello, i was reading this recipe. Let me tell you, i didn't get past step number 2 before i was running out the door to buy the ingredients for this recipe. Because the cereals that are needed for this recipe were not on sale, i kinda skimped on the cereal. i used crispix and muilti-grain cheerios. Also, i think the cashew pieces get lost in the sea of chex mix. Maybe next time i'll use whole cashews. i also doubled the seasoning mix and i didnt have celery salt, so i used celery seed instead and added a bit more seasoning salt
I can't believe that I've never posted a review! Since you posted this recipe, it has become a holiday tradition at our house too! This is absolutely the BEST Chex Mix recipe that I've tried, and I've tried a lot of them! Thank you so much for taking the time to post it all those years ago!
I brought this to work today and it was gone in less than 2 hours (we only have about 15 people in our office and this made a TON so I was expecting leftovers but I guess not!!). I received lots of compliments and recipe requests. Thanks for a fun, new twist on one of my favorites!!! It's a super easy, delicious recipe for a hungry crowd - I will be making it for a tailgate soon!
This is the absolute best!!! I even double the seasonings for a bolder flavor. WOW! I've made this several times and have added grated parmesean cheese to the top after I put the mix on the baking sheets. It just adds another texture. Any thing you add to it would be great. Also i have searched everywhere for bagel chip and have yet to find just the chips. Thanks for posting!
Just finished making this. Wow! I'm gnoshing on it still warm. I didn't have the celery salt, so I used some extra Lowery's after it was done cooking. I also used chipotle Tabasco. I will make this again. BE WARNED!!! You will have to think about where to put all this. This recipe makes a ton. My friends will be happy when I show up with bags full of the stuff.
This mix was outstanding. I think my bacon must've been a little fattier than some, because the first batch I made I could taste the bacon grease just a little stronger than I would have liked. The second batch I cut it back a little. On the second batch I also used Crispix instead of some of the Chex (ran out)I also accidentally used Honey Nut cheerios but I actually think the little bit of sweetness it added was really good and I might just do it this way intentionally next time, it made a really nice sweet and salty kind of combo.
This is the BEST chex mix I have made. made it for a gift and found the tabasco really gives it a kick along with the bacon grease!!!
This is fantastic! My husband has made it twice in the past 2 weeks.
