Hello All, its been a hectic but fun weekend! Got to go to Winstar and let loose on Saturday, which is always fun! How was your weekend? Do anything fun or interesting?
Well last Thursday night I decided I was in the mood for some homemade Chex Mix. We all like it in our house, the kids love it for their school snacks, and... I needed something to bring to their Valentines parties next week, so this is perfect! I made plenty for us and their parties!
I actually got this recipe off of the good ole Chex cereal box. But I'm gonna type it out for you guys, so don't worry trying to read the box, lol.
I got a 3 Pack Party box set over the holidays, it had the Wheat Chex, Rice Chex and the Corn in it all for $5. Me being so frugal, normally I'd buy all generic brands. But since these were all big boxes for that price, why not buy the name brand right? RIGHT!
For their recipe you will need:
3 Cups of Rice Chex Cereal
3 Cups of Corn Chex Cereal
3 Cups of Wheat Chex Cereal
1 cup of garlic bagal chips
1 cup of mini pretzels
1 cup of mixed nuts
6 tablespoons of margarine or butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 onion powder
For the mixed nuts I already had some roasted peanuts and pecans, so I just added those.
I have almost a full bag of pecans from my parents house. I love fresh pecans, however I like mainly for baking, so I freeze them and use them all year long!
I could not find the bagel chips at any of the stores around me. So I just added more nuts and a little more wheat chex.
Per the directions, melt the butter first and add all the dry ingredients and spices in another bowl.
Then pour the melted butter over the mix and then the Worcestershire sauce and stir. Then put it in the microwave and cook for 6 minutes total, stopping and stirring every 2 minutes.
I did not have a big enough bowl so I did mine over the stove, and it was not easy.
I then made another batch, but this time did not add the pretzels, and instead added Sesame Sticks. I couldn't find them at the grocery store but they I knew they sold them at Walgreen's.
I decided to cut the recipe in half and cook them into two separate batches so I could fit it into the microwave. I worked so much better!
When your are done cooking it, then lay it on a sheet of foil or wax paper.
Let it dry and then you need to put them into air tight containers. I put some into plastic Christmas tins, and the other into a gallon size baggie.
The kids love it, and we've been snacking on it all weekend!
I hope this recipe serves you well!
Thanks for tuning in! Until next time...
