Growing up, I remember my Grandma always having homemade Chex Mix around her house at Christmastime. I wanted to share her recipe with y'all. When I called her to get it, she told me she uses the one on the box of cereal ("classic chex mix"). Even so, in my mind, it will always be Grandma's Chex mix!
Here's the recipe:
3 cups each Corn, Rice, and Wheat Chex cereals
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup bite-size pretzels
1 cup bagel chips (Grandma usually puts White Cheddar Cheez-Its instead)
6 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Heat oven to 250*. In a large, ungreased roasting pan, melt butter 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, about 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
I was recently contacted by MyBlogSpark about a promotion Kroger is running in conjunction with Chex cereal. Through December 25, Chex are on sale so you can make delicious holiday Chex Mix on a budget! MyBlogSpark sent me a package with two boxes of Chex cereal and a $25 Kroger giftcard so I could check out the sale for myself, and they have offered to send one of y'all a prize pack as well!
