Ingredients
  • 1½ sticks melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp homemade seasoning salt
  • 1 Tbsp worchestershire sauce
  • Extra ½ - 1 Tbsp seasoning salt while mixing to adjust to taste
  • 3 cups corn chex
  • 3 cups rice chex
  • 3 cups wheat chex
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks, broken in pieces
  • Mixed nuts or peanuts, optional
  • HOMEMADE SEASONING SALT ~
  • 2 Tbsp sea salt
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • ¾ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250.
  2. In large cookie sheet, melt butter in pan.
  3. Mix up homemade seasoning salt.
  4. Pour melted butter into large bowl (original recipe called for mixing on cookie sheet...I found I was able to get better coating by stirring the chex in a bowl to coat with additional mixing on cookie sheet).
  5. Add seasoning salt and worchestershire sauce to butter. Mix well. Add in all chex mix, stirring between each addition. Add in pretzels, and nuts if using.
  6. Pour chex mix back into buttered cookie sheet. Spread out and sprinkle with additional seasoning salt. Continue mixing, stirring and seasoning to desired taste.
  7. Cook in oven for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.
  8. Makes 9 - 10 cups.
  9. ** I've made this twice this month. The first time I made the recipe on the original card above of course with butter (not margarine). It was good, but not quite seasoned the way I remembered. I made the adjustments you see here and it turned out perfectly.
