Original Chex Mix

This is the recipe that was on the Chex cereal box with a few additions, when I was a child. I hope you like it as much as I do. I seem to make it every year around Christmas time, so Cheers!

    This is really really good. I did make a few changes. We like extra "goodies" so I use 2 cups of peanuts, 2 cups of mini cheddar pretzels, and 2 cups of gold fish crackers. I use an extra half stick of butter, extra 1/4 tsp of season salt, and extra tsp of Worcestershire sauce since I add to the dry mix. It bakes nice and toasty. This brings back memories from when I was a kid!

    Love this stuff! On my second round this season. I use white cheddar nips rather than pretzels and double the nuts. So much better than the "new" recipe! Thanks for posting!

    Perfect! Just as I remember it. I've been looking for the "Original", I'm happy to have it in my recipe box once again. Thanks for posting this, I remember my Mother adding a few cheerios too.

    I was very happy to come across this particular Chex Mix recipe! Some of the different party mix recipes have gotten somewhat expensive to make. This version is simple, tasty, and contrary to one reviewer's rather unkind remark, "it is NEITHER GREASY OR BORING". I followed exactly, except I used one cup each of pretzels and nuts. I wouldn't mess with the liquid ingredient proportions, but you can always add more dry seasoning to suit your personal tastes. Babybuttons, thanks for the recipe! We make Chex Mix on a regular basis and this is going to be my go-to from now on out!

    I made this in November, and it was a hit! I am about to make another batch for our New Years Eve gathering with the family. Thank you for sharing a great recipe!
