chex mix!

chexmix Craving Chex Mix so I just made some right now.  The recipe below is for the Original Chex Mix that is found on the Chex cereal boxes usually.  My favorite part of Chex Mix is just the cereal so I usually make it with just Corn Chex for myself and mix in extra garlic powder after the seasoning mixture is stirred in because I like mine extra garlicky!


3 cups Corn Chex 3 cups Rice Chex 3 cups Wheat Chex 1 cup mixed nuts 1 cup bite size pretzels 1 cup garlic bite size bagel chips 6 tbs butter 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce 1.5 tsp seasoned salt 3/4 garlic powder 1/2 tsp onion powder


(1)  In large microwave bowl, mix cereal, nuts, pretzels and bagel chips. 

(2)  In a small microwave bowl melt the butter uncovered on High for about 40 seconds or until melted.  Stir in seasonings. Pour over ceral mix and stir until coated.  (I find it helps to evenly coat the cereal if you spoon small amounts of the butter mix, mix a little, and repeat)

(3)  Microwave uncovered on High for 5-6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.  (I only really heat it for 2 mins or so because my microwave is very hot and burned/ruined my Chex Mix the first time I ever tired to make it.  You may have to figure out yourself the best amount of heating time is for your microwave.)

(4)  Spread out on a tray or paper towel to cool.  (I don't really wait for them to cool completely because I usually want to snack immediately...haha)
