Kicked Up Chex Mix


It seems everyone has their own recipe for Chex mix, or maybe you follow the recipe on the box. We like ours on the spicy side, here is how I make it!

The recipe is pretty standard I just add some additional spice. It makes a great New Years Eve snack and the spiciness will keep you awake!

1 cube unsalted butter or margarine
4 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/4 teaspoons seasoned salt (We use Lawry's)
1 tsp ground celery seed
1 tsp garlic powder
2 to 3 teaspoons red pepper sauce (we use twice this amount)
3 cups Corn Chex® cereal
3 cups Rice Chex® cereal
3 cups Wheat Chex® cereal
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup pretzels
1 cup bite-size cheese crackers (we omitted this)
Cholula Spice Mix (as much as you like)

Heat oven to 250°F

In a large bowl, melt your butter, add in all the additional ingredients (except the Chex Mix and Pretzels) and mix well.

Add the Chex mix and Pretzels and stir stir stir until well coated (at this point you can taste for your level of spice tolerance and add more if you wish, just stir a bunch more)

Place on a non stick baking sheet

Bake uncovered 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Let cool and store in airtight container.

I was lucky enough to have some of this (thank you neighbor) and I must say it was the best I've ever had.

Happy New Year Cheryl, John and Martha.

I was just thinking that I should make some of this. I don't have pretzels but I think it would be good with some pita chips. Yum!

Sounds quite tasty! I might give it a go after we make a bit more space in the pantry. Seems like no matter how big it is, I can always fill it up without a problem! ;o)

Let me just say that I had this on Christmas day, it had more than just a kick. One piece of it almost knocked me to the floor. Ok I am a big spice wimp, but it was really good.
