I definitely need to make chex mix this year, I love the stuff! It was a holiday staple in my house growing up, my mom would make it in her turkey roaster, she would end up with what looked like truck loads of the stuff!

The wheat chex are my favorite because they soak up lots of the butter mixture!

Same here .. but this batch I left them out. I had leftover Corn & Rice, no left over Wheat. But I have a new combo 3 pack in the pantry to make more I might have to get more garlic powder.

I haven't tried this yet but because I'm trying to limit salt.......I'll give it a try. But I'll use salted butter and hope that that's enough salt for me. I won't use one of the commercial seasoning mixes.

I'll also just use regular Cheerios, wheat and rice chex etc. I want to limit but not eliminate all salt.

My favorite cereal snack is just plain Cheerios. I buy a box every so often and just sit and snack right from the box. I hate when I get to the bottom.

I took the liberty to convert the OG recipe to weight measurements .. It's been many a year since I've made this.

3 cups Corn Chex® cereal (93g)
3 cups Rice Chex® cereal (81g)
3 cups Wheat Chex® cereal (141g)
1 cup mixed nuts (~112g*)
1 cup bite-size pretzels (~60g*)
1 cup garlic-flavor bite-size bagel chips (~60g*)
* Check serving size to adjust

6 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Preparation Directions:
1. In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals, nuts, pretzels and bagel chips; set aside. In small microwavable bowl, microwave butter uncovered on High about 40 seconds or until melted. Stir in seasonings. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until evenly coated.

2. Microwave uncovered on High 5 to 6 minutes, thoroughly stirring every 2 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.

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
