I know Christmas is fast approaching because I have pulled my Chex Party Mix recipe out of my recipe box. It is not just any recipe–It is cut from a box of chex, and is older than I care to admit. I don’t like reading the Chex boxes that claim they have the “Original” recipe, but then they have ingredients like garlic bagel chips. Where did that come from? Garlic bagel chips weren’t even invented when The Original Chex recipe was first published. Enough said. You can make any version of the Chex recipe you want, just don’t call it the “Original” version. I get a little testy about this. Now that I have commited this recipe to my blog, I don’t have to worry about losing the truly “Original” recipe.
Original Chex Party Mix Recipe
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 1/4 teaspoons seasoned salt
4 1/2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce
8 cups of your favorite Chex brand cereals (Corn, Rice, Wheat)
1 cup mixed nuts (I confess, I use cashews)
1 cup stick pretzels
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Melt butter in an open roasting pan. Stir in seasoned salt and Worchestershire sauce. Add cereal, nuts and pretzels, and stir until all pieces are evenly coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on absorbent paper to cool. Store in an airtight container. (I use Ziplock freezer bags)
This is a very easy recipe to double and cook 2 batches in the oven at one time. Make sure you use 2 separate roaster pans.
Hope you enjoy this. Until next time… From our Butcher Block to your Table.
