• Chex Mix Recipe

    Date: 2011.06.30 | Category: recipes | Tags: ,

    We’re getting ready to go camping and when I was at the grocery store this afternoon I decided to make Chex Mix to bring with us.  I bought two boxes of chex and figured I’d raid the pantry for all of the other ingredients.  When I got home I realized I didn’t have any peanuts- boo- so I used cashews and almonds.  I also threw in some Cheerios and some Kix since I had them in the pantry.  As I was baking the mix the smell brought me right back to my childhood.  My mom ALWAYS made home made Chex Mix for our annual camping trip to Yosemite.  It stirred up lots of good memories for me.

    This is the recipe I made today- of course you can adjust it to your preferences!

    9 cups Chex (I used store brand rice and corn flavor)
    1 cup Cheerios
    1 cup Kix
    1 cup pretzels
    1 cup mixed nuts

    Combine all dry ingredients in a very large mixing bowl.

    6 TBS butter
    2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
    1 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
    3/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp onion powder

    Melt butter in a small bowl.  Add all seasonings and mix well.  Add to cereal mixture and toss until well coated.

    Microwave uncovered for 6 minutes- stirring every 2 minutes.  Lay out on a paper towel to cool for at least 15 minutes.  Store in an airtight container until it’s gone!

    I’m so sorry that I haven’t gotten anything up about our vacation to CA yet!  I have over 700 photos to go through still and now we’re headed on a 5 day camping trip.  I’ll get to it eventually!
