Welcome to my very first food post!
This is my favorite holiday snack. Hands down. My grandma makes this every year for me and my cousins, and I can never get enough. Of course, I had to learn to make it myself. Once it’s made, I can devour this entire Chex Mix in a few days (I’m not embarrassed. Not even a little). This is the perfect little mix to snack on before or after dinner, or while you’re wrapping last-minute gifts!
2 sticks of unsalted butter
4 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoons of seasoning salt (I use Lawry’s low-sodium)
1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 box of corn cereal
1 box of rice cereal
1 can of cocktail peanuts (big or small – depending on how nutty you want it!) I also add pecans if I have any!
Pretzel sticks (again, as much or as little as you want)
1 extra-large aluminum pan for cooking
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Melt two sticks of butter on the stove. Add Worcestershire sauce, seasoning salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to butter. Stir until combined. Dump corn cereal, rice cereal, cocktail peanuts, and pretzel sticks in large aluminum pan and mix together. Pour butter mixture over cereal. Stir until combined. Place pan in oven and cook for 45 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes. Once cooking is done, let it cool before putting into gallon storage bags until ready to eat!
This recipe is easily doubled or tripled. Trust me, you will want more! This recipe yields two gallon bags (sorry, I know that is a strange measurement, but I have no idea how many cups it makes!).
