Homemade Chex Mix

February 21, 2012

I hope all my U.S. readers had a wonderful President’s Day! Here in Central Minnesota, we had a beautiful snowy day. Just enough snow to make for a peaceful afternoon. We simply haven’t had any blizzards this winter, any terrible weather that keeps us stuck at home. So my husband and I decided to pretend that it WAS a blizzard and that we were stuck at home since he was off work today anyway. It’s been an afternoon and evening of movies and hot sandwiches, blankets and fresh, homemade banana bread.

So here’s a recipe for all of you to make on a snowy day, a game day, a Sunday afternoon, a movie night… really any point when you have a craving for something salty!

Try out this bold and flavorful homemade Chex Mix.

In an electric skillet at 250 degrees or a large pan over low heat on a stovetop, melt 6 tablespoons of butter and add 4 teaspoons of Worchestershire sauce, 3/8 teaspoon of garlic powder and 3/8 teaspoon of salt.

Add 6 cups of Chex cereal, 1 cup of pretzels and 1 cup of peanuts. (I used 3 cups of corn Chex and 3 cups of rice Chex. You could also use wheat Chex .)

Mix until all pieces are coated with butter mixture. Cover pan but allow it to vent. Heat for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Cool by spreading on paper towels to absorb extra butter. Then pack in an airtight container.
