Thanks Josh! I copy pasted for the next time I need a salt fix :-)

When I am feeling especially flush at the holidays I add a box of Bugles to my Chex mix recipe. The nacho works well but the plain is okay too. Just have to keep the kids from picking them all out of the mix.

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

I agree about the pretzels. I used the mini ties - too hard after cooking compared to the rest of the mix. I'm taking them out as I go. Next time, sticks, broken.

BTW, I was looking to see if Soy sauce is a good substitute (it is) and saw chow mein noodles as an ingredient. It's really good, as they are a bit bland to start with and soak up a delicious flavor. Maybe I'll skip the pretzels entirely next time.

Especially tasty.

Also, I noticed that dry roasted peanuts and honey roasted peanuts were the same price. I opted for the regular dry roasted, but after tasting this mix, I'll definitely go for the sweet/salty flavor of the honey roasted nuts next time.

I'm so craving this mix--I have to make some before the week is through. Thanks for reminding me!

Other snack mix combos for the holidays.

Mix: cheese-it crackers, chicken flavored crackers, wheat thins all flavors, triscuts, pretzels, and any other of your favorites--in the smaller sized crackers. No need to add butter and flavorings if you don't want to.

another: melt a bag of butterscotch chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips, add cups of peanuts, broken pretzels and mixed nuts, spoon onto waxed paper in small globs and let cool and set.

It's that time of year again for our fav salty snack! I pretty much suck with the last recipe, but added an extra TBSP Worcestershire Sauce.

I'll post pics after it's done baking

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
