Chex Mix

In addition to biscuits, chex mix is very likely my favorite food in the world. And when I say chex mix, I mean my mom’s homemade chex mix! Her recipe is out-of-this world delicious, satisfying, and addictive. We’ve been making – and devouring – chex mix since we were little girls, and it’s always been a family staple around the holidays. My mom definitely knows to have ingredients on hand whenever we come home for a vacation! She’s clearly the best mom ever. My mouth is already watering just thinking about the fact that she and I will be making chex mix this week during Thanksgiving break (I promise it’s not the only reason that I’m headed home for the holidays!). I think you should also do yourself a favor and whip up a batch of this perfection! It’s the ultimate blend of flavors & textures – and oh so simple to make.

1 stick of butter

1/4 C worcestershire sauce

1 t Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning

2 C wheat chex

4 C rice chex

4 C Crispix

1 C Bugles

1 C broken pretzels

1/2  C peanuts

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.  Melt butter in the oven in a large (11 x 15 or so) baking or roasting pan. Once melted, stir in worcestershire sauce and Tony’s.  In very large bowl, put of any combination of the cereal, Bugles, pretzels and peanuts (about 10-11 cups total).  Pour it all into the butter & worcestershire mixture at once, and then stir the mess quickly to coat everything.  Bake in the oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  Add extra dashes of worcestershire sauce at the first stir (and try not to eat too much of the chex mix while it’s baking!).  After the hour, empty the chex mix onto paper towels and spread to cool.  I dare you to only make one batch!
