This is the original chex mix recipe off the box of General Mills Chex Cereal. This is a great snack mix to put out during the holidays or to even give as gifts!
Ad

Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F
  2. Melt butter in a large roasting pan in the oven (if you do not have a large roasting pan you can use 2 casserole pans)
  3. Mix Cereal, pretzels and nuts together in a bowl, set aside
  4. Mix seasonings together, set aside
  5. Pour seasonings in with melted butter in the pan and mix
  6. Pour dry ingredients in the pan mixing well.
  7. Place in oven and cook for one hour, stir every 15 minutes.
  8. After an hour take out of the oven and spread mix out on 3 layers of paper towels, let sit for 15 minutes (or place in a large paper bag and shake)
  9. Serve and enjoy!

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.

There's nothing like sweet and salty together.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Heat butter in large shallow baking pan in oven until melted. Remove, stir in season salt and Worcestershire sauce. Add Chex and nuts. Mix until all are coated. Heat in oven 45 minutes.

Stir every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on absorbent paper or your M and Ms will melt. After the mix is cooled, add M and M's and stir. Makes around 8 cups.

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.

I use Crisp-x cereal the recipe is on the back of the box. You only need the one kind of cereal. Very good.

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.
