Post 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.

I love Chex Mix. My mother made it every holiday and called it "kitty litter" I am now trying to carry on the family tradition.

The thing I always liked about Chex Mix was the light sprinkling of Worcestershire sauce. It gives it a nice earthy flavor.

I always add the Cheerios after it bakes and before the mixture cools. They seem to shrink to nothing when baked.

My mom always made it, and I loved it. Last year when visiting me, she decided to make some, a quadruple batch, since she had a bit of wine prior, she confused tsp with tbs and that was some really salty chex mix!

I love it too. I found several versions on the back of the chex boxes but they all use the microwave!!! Somehow, I don't think that will get the same crunchiness of an oven. There were no instructions for stovetop/oven conversions either.

I can't get Chex up here so I make "nuts and bolts" with the stuff I can get. Its become a family tradition and its one of the things I HAVE to give away to certain people every year. LOL!

I've been looking for instructions too. The commodity box I get every month often has boxes of cereal, including one with two kinds of hex shaped chex type of mixed corn and rice. I also saved a box of oat o's too. I have raisins and craisins. All I need are pretzels and nuts and they are on the list.

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.

When I first started making Chex mix, the recipe I had said to melt the butter/margarine in a large electric skillet, then add all the seasonings and stir to mix. Then I was to add the cereals etc. and stir to coat. With the temperature at like 225 degrees Fahrenheit, I was to cook the mix for an hour, stirring to recoat every 15 minutes. It really was quite good.
