Video Recipe :: Chex Mix

The weekend is almost here!  And I think you and your family will enjoy a little treat that we have been loving around my house lately. Homemade Chex Mix!  We’ve upped the ante on the classic recipe and added a sweet note.  Oh yes, the salty sweet combo that is hard to resist.  Maybe you shouldn’t make this…you might get addicted.  But I think you should!  Plus I’ve made you a video and it would just make my day if you made your own batch!

The most important thing with this recipe is that you feel complete control and freedom to tweak it.  I call it an “ish” recipe.  All the ingredients, and I mean all, are tweakable.   For example, you need 6-8ish cups of corn chex.  There are 2ish cups of pretzels, but if you are a pretzel fanatic, add more!  Not a fan of peanuts?  Skip’em.  Too much butter for your taste…what’s wrong with you??!  Just kidding.  No I’m not.  Bottom line, is I want you to make this to your taste.  Do try the salty sweet though!  The secret is honey chex and honey cheerios.  That sweet with the saltiness of the seasonings is what makes this so yummy!

Enjoy the video!  Below are the written directions.

Remember this is an “ish” recipe!!!  Think of what else you could add…bagel chips, M&M’s (after it’s baked and cooled!!!), mini crackers??  In the seasoning mix you could add a kick of cayenne or chilli powder.  Comment with any other ideas you have!  I’d love to try some different combos.

6-8 cups corn chex (or rice or wheat)

4 cups honey chex

2 cups pretzels

2 cups honey cheerios

1 cup peanuts (I like dry roasted)

Combine in a large roasting pan…or whatever you have big enough and oven safe.

Mix the following in a bowl and then add to chex mix.

8 Tablespoons melted butter (1 stick)

4 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce

3 teaspoons Lawry’s Seasoned Salt (We like it salty folks, so cut this back if you and salt have issues.)

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Stir every 15 minutes for 1 hour. {So worth it!}


And might I suggest you pair a bowl of this with an ice cold Root Beer or Shirley Temple with extra grenadine.  Oh man, you know that sounds good!!
