I looked up instructions but as you know, I only found microwave. Not only do I think they wouldn't get crispy, but I wouldn't have room in my microwave.

I googled chex mix oven directions and found one from chex, you just have to scroll down past the microwave directions.

I don't have a big pan, so I'll probably just make a foil pan. I don't see why that wouldn't work.
Zhizara, I posted my recipe and method here. You can use cookie sheets too. If you are making smaller batches its easy to 1/2 my recipe.

months ago I was searching for something, i forget, and found this Scrabble recipe, and I couldn't wait to make it for the holidays. I Google'd Scrabble mix recipe, and found even more variations. I was trying to make the Scrabble I found months ago, but was trying to 1/2 the batch .. and forgot to add the Cheerios (but they wouldn't have fit in the pan anyways)

Anyone have a recipe for a "health food nut"? I don't buy those kinds of cereals and I don't buy pretzels made with white flour.

You can use any kind of cereal you want. I know my seasoning recipe has been made with gluten free types of cereals and rice crackers.

Baking some this morning

3oz Chex Rice
3oz Chex Corn
6oz Chex Wheat
6oz Bagel Chips
6oz Pretzel Stix
16oz Fancy Mixed Nuts
16oz Peanuts
2 Stix Butter (1/2 lb)
3 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Seasoned Salt
1 Big Roaster Pan

Bake in the oven for 1 hour at 250*F string every 15 mins .. can't wait for it to be done


edit: What do you do to drizzle the butter stuff on the mix? I was just using the small pot & wisker to try and drizzle it evenly.

I used a measuring cup with a spout, so I could drizzle a little at a time using wide sweeps side to side and end to end of the pan, mix some more, drizzle some more, etc. I had a roaster pan 3/4 full, so cooking time was 1-1/2 hours until all the moisture was taken up and mix was crispy. It worked just fine.

Zhizara .. I was going to use a measuring cup, but I think I did ok with the wisk helping me drizzle/splash some out. What I really wanted was a Turkey Baster, but with like a diffuser nozzle .. hehe.

It's done baking .. just letting it sit and cool/dry out some. I like this batch better .. not as Chexy/cerealy as my 1st batch. The extra Worcest sauce gave it a better tang taste. I think it came out a bit too salty .. will check on saltyness over time as we eat it.

Looks just like mine, except I made a little less so I would have room to mix. I was afraid of it being too salty, and substituted more seasoned salt instead of the garlic salt, but put a little less than called for, just to be sure. It came out great. I love it that instead of a sandwich when I get hungry, I can just eat some of this instead. I'd even go so far as to say it's good for you.

Good for you with 1/2lb of butter!

I LOVE Chex Mix .. but I think this batch is a little too salty. Next batch I'll 1/2 the Seasoned Salt (the garlic I used is just powder). This mix seems to well balanced with the dry stuff .. maybe more pretzle sticks. I like them broken in 1/2, because it's abit hard to mash a handfull of mix in your mouth with big sticks poking out

recipe

My version of Chex Mix 4oz Chex Rice 4oz Chex Corn 8oz Chex Wheat 6oz Bagel Chips 6oz of Pretzel Stix 16oz Fancy Mixed Nuts 16oz Roasted Peanuts 2 stix butter (1/2 lb) 1tbsp Garlic Powder 1tbsp Seasoned Salt 1 Big Roaster Pan Preheat oven to 225*F I first made this with 6oz of Chex Rice & Corn .. but it came out too Chexy, so this one with less should be better. I forgot to add Cheerios that is in Scrabble, but even if I did there wouldn't be room in the pan. Mix all of the dry in the roaster pan. Melt the butter in a pot & add the garlic & salt. Drizzle the butter over the mix and try and even it out. Bake the mix for 2 hours, and re-mix it every 20 mins. 3 stars 1 reviews
