Chex mix that is made with ingredients that all of my kids can agree on by the handful, and with a bit more punch in seasoning. This simple snack is completely addicting and is perfect any time of the day.
Start by preheating your oven to 250 F. Next mix all of your dry seasonings in a bowl and set it to the side. Add the butter to a large roasting pan and place it in the oven as the oven preheats. Only heat until the butter is melted. Once melted, remove pan from the oven, add in the Worcestershire sauce and seasoning blend and give it a good stir.
Next add in the Rice and Corn Chex, pretzels and nuts. Give that a really good stir, being careful not to crush all of the Chex. Once mixed, place back in the oven.
You are going to cook this for about one hour, and remove it from the oven every 20 minutes to give it a good stir. Once stirred, place back in the oven, and repeat 2 more times until the hour is up.
Your house will begin to smell really, really good. Almost too good that you might want to take it out after 20 minutes and begin snacking on it. Just wait, and be patient. It will pay off.
When the hour is up, remove it from the oven, and turn off the heat. If you have a large baking sheet, pour the mixture onto it to help with the cooling. Now you can start eating it.
Once cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Who am I kidding? This Chex Mix will only last a week, if that. This is a perfect snack that won the hearts of everyone in my family. My daughter was able to easily snack on all the pretzels, my kids on their handfuls of Chex, and my wife was the real winner. Not a bagel chip in sight, nor a Wheat Chex.
The flavor of this mixture is hands down better than the store bought. It does have a slight kick from the cayenne. But the Old Bay, garlic and seasoned salt, as well as the classic flavor of the Worcestershire sauce really sends this Chex mix recipe into a whole new category of awesomeness. So the next time you are craving Chex Mix, and a really great snack, give this one a shot.
Now the big question is, what is your favorite part of the Chex Mix?
I am a Mexican food fiend and nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of pico de gallo and chips. This is such an easy recipe and you can make it mild, medium or spicy depending on what you prefer. I like spicy, so jalapeno peppers are for me, but you could add habanero peppers if you like a lot of heat!
