Chex Party Mix


What?? You've never made homemade Chex Mix before?!

Oh, believe me when I say homemade is sooo much better than the little storebought packages! And, believe me, too, when I say how WONDERFUL Chex Mix smells when baking. Oh, YUMM!

Chex Mix is soo easy to make and is the perfect snack food for your holiday company!

I grew up before bagel chips were invented included in the original recipe - lol - but, they do add another great texture and flavor to the mix. I usually find bagel chips in the deli/bakery section of my grocery store.

You can also find many variations of "Chex Mix" now. Try the winning recipe in the recent Chex Mix recipe contest: Buffalo Chex Mix! MMM! Or, our family's other favorite: Muddy Buddies, which is a sweet peanut butter and chocolate coated chex mix!

Ok...so, get ready for your next party by making some Chex Mix!

ORIGINAL CHEX PARTY MIX

6 tablespoons butter or margarin
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
3 cups Corn Chex cereal (the last time I made this, I forgot to buy the corn chex, so I just doubled the rice chex...but, don't forget the wheat chex!)
3 cups Rice Chex cereal
3 cups Wheat Chex cereal
1 cup mixed nuts (I use only peanuts)
1 cup pretzels
1 cup garlic-flavor bite size bagel chips or regular size bagel chips, broken into 1-inch pieces

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Melt butter in large roasting pan in oven. Stir in seasonings. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients until evenly coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container. 12 cups snack.

Recommend: OH, YES! ;-)

We've made Chex Party Mix, but usually I just buy the bag. Otherwise it goes too fast!
