I cannot imagine the holidays without my Grandmother’s Homemade Chex Mix. This year is the first year we aren’t spending Christmas in Chicago, where I can eat all of the Chex Mix my mom makes. LOL As a result, I resorted to making it on my own this year. Surprisingly, not only did I realize how easy this recipe is but how fun it is to do with the kids too.
We started making Chex Mix this year at Thanksgiving to give to all of the boys’ teachers in mason jars, attached with a recipe card, and we’re still making it! Let’s just say it disappears quickly in our house. In fact, I’ve caught Landon sneaking it a few times, which is very reminiscent of me growing up.
This recipe comes with a little warning . . . it’s highly addictive. But if you’re like me, sometimes you just have to say YES! during the holidays, and this is definitely one of the ones to say yes to.
Watch this video to see how it’s done. The recipe in its entirety is below the video:
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
6 Tablespoons of melted butter
4 Tablespoons of Worchestershire Sauce
3/8 teaspoons of garlic powder
On a cooking sheet spread out 6 cups of mixed Chex cereal (We used wheat and rice.), along with 2 handfuls of pretzel sticks (You can also add cheerios, peanuts, or anything that sounds good.)
Cook for 45 minutes at 250 degrees, mixing every 15 minutes.
Spread on parchment paper to cool.
Portion out in Mason Jars.
Enjoy! Share with a friend!
