Good chex mix with a bit of a kick -- I used half the amount of hot sauce (Frank's) and the lesser amount of seasoning salt (Tony's) so I could give it as gifts for a variety of people's taste preferences. Used peanuts instead of mixed nuts, Rold Gold cheddar tiny twist pretzels, and added a cup of goldfish crackers to each batch.

When I make this for DH and me, I will use the full amount of hot sauce and seasoning salt and probably double the seasonings for a really bold blend .

I grew up on this stuff - and - the recipe is as I remembered! Overall I call this a 10! I added 1 Cup of Cherrios, 1 Cup of Cheddar Fish things. I added a tbsp of Virgin Olive Oil. I went with un-saulted nuts and put a ginch more Oninion, Garlic, Seasoning Salt to compensate.

I did not: Use Paper Towels to dry.
I did: Put everything in a very large Pretzel Jar to store.
I plan: To add either Raisens or M$M's for sweetness.

I do think you need to give this think 18-24 hours to "Ferment". I ate some 1 hour out of the oven - not good.

Regardless - a fantastic recipe. I should also say I bought generic cereal - did not harm it one iota.

Thanks to Ameliahead!

FYI - Worcestershire sauce is not vegetarian.

Very good Chex mix. I doubled the recipe, added some gold fish and cooked in the microwave on high, stirring every two minutes. I only used about half the hot sauce and is just right for us. It is too hot to bake, so decided to take this for birthday treats instead. Most at my office will prefer this over sweets anyway!

Oh man. I've got this in the oven right now and it smells heavenly. I had to use 9 C of Crispix cuz we don't have Chex in Canada. I used waffle pretzels and whole cashews. Instead of Pickapepper sauce I used Louisiana brand hot sauce, and for seasoning salt I used Slap Ya Mama (local to SE Louisiana, where I'm from). I can already tell this is going to be phenomenal. Thanks for this!!

We enjoyed this mix very much though we tweeked it to our tastes. I will use it again for a "basic seasoning". We used wheat chex, corn chex, reg. peanuts instead of mixed, and the Pickapeppa Sauce was replaced with Franks Hot Sauce. The mix came out crisp and tasty. Thanks for posting Ameliahead!
