Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
In our family we have played with this recipe over the years. We have tried using tamari soy sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce, added a few teaspoons of Cayenne pepper or have added Wasabi peas. So have fun and change it up a bit to fit your flavor preference.
Melt butter butter. Add Worstershire sauce, garlic salt, onion salt, celery salt, mixed nuts, cereal and pretzels. Place in large pan suitable for stirring. Bake at 225 degrees F for 2 hours, stirring often.
Makes about 4 quarts. When grandma put this recipe together, in 1960, it cost her $1.80 to make. I made it in 1980 and it cost $3.28. In 1991, it cost me between $7 and $8.

There's nothing like sweet and salty together for a easy holiday snack.
Does anyone have recipes for 'party mixes' that uses nuts, fruits, or cereal. My family loves the Chex party mix and would love to try some new ones. THANKS

My sister who just passed away on Monday at age 86 had the most wonderful snack mix recipe. She started several years ago with the chex mix and kept adding stuff to it, cashews, small pretzels, various crunchy cerals and the little sesame sticks at the health food store. She built a great snack just by using her own imagination and it was delicious. She would never share the recipe but freely gave away the snack to anyone who wanted it. You can do that. Just start throwing stuff into it.
Thanks MartyD for the good idea. I am sorry to hear of your sister's passing.I lost my parents this year and the holidays are rough.Thanks again for the recipe idea.May God bless. Deb816
I use Crisp-x cereal the recipe is on the back of the box. You only need the one kind of cereal. Very good.
Hello, you can go to http://www.bettycrocker.com They have a whole bunch of snack mix recipes to print for free. Happy Holidays!
I like MartyD's sister's idea. Make your own concoction and Never give out the recipe. Let 'em enjoy it and try to figure out what you put in it.
I'm looking for a Chex mix recipe that has peanut butter and I believe honey on it, but no powdered sugar. My husband is diabetic. I would appreciate your help.
