Chex Mix My Way

"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."

    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!

    This was my first attempt at a homemade chex mix and I think it turned out well. The predominate flavor of this mix is butter and it wasn't as flavorful as I would have liked. It was tasty, but could have been better. In reading the opening comments, I should have added the extra sauce as mentioned. After everything cooled, I added a medium bag of peanut m&ms and that was a nice addition. Thanks for posting, I'll definitely make this again with extra seasonings next time.

    Followed this recipe to the letter and it came out perfect. It was a great snack mix for a small gathering I had. Everyone loved it!

    This has terrific flavor! I used the "extra sauce" recipe and Crispix and it came out great. I thought the idea of adding some garlic and onion powder sounded like a good idea, but what I had was garlic and onion salt. I used them anyway, but the mix came out on the salty side. No stars off for that, though, because that's completely on me. Next time I will use the powder forms, since I do think the flavor is right on. Thanks for posting!

    So good. I had some rice chex and wheat chex that were open and needed to be used up, so I used what I had of them and then addex some cheerios to make the 8 cups. I served these in bowls around my house for our football party and they were a hit. There was none left. This worked perfect for me to use up my small bits of cereal, I'm goingto keep this recipe close so I can "clean out my cereal cupboard again" Thank you for sharing you recipe with us.

    Adding 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic and onion POWDER gives it a little more depth of flavor. DON'T make the same mistake I made the first time and use garlic and onion SALT. Flavor was great, but on the salty side. (And I like salty so that's saying something!)

    This was pretty tasty. I used steak sauce instead of worcestershire (vegetarian friendly option). It wasn't extremely flavorful, I think I would take the author's suggestion of upping the "sauce" next time.

    I use Orville Redenbacher's buttery flavor popcorn oil in place of butter for it has 0g trans fat.
