Chex Mix ... a Favorite Fall Snack

  Mr. K has eaten this all his life and it is his FAVORITE snack.  =)  

His Grandma made it for him as a child.  

His sister, Amy, made it for him when he was in college.  

Now I make it for him and maybe one day I'll pass the torch on to Abigail.  =)

Melt 1 stick of butter in the microwave.  Add season salt and Worcestershire sauce.  Mix well with a fork.

In a large mixing bowl, combine Chex/Crispix, Cheerios, Goldfish, and Honey Roasted Peanuts.

Pour butter mixture over dry cereal mixture and gently stir together.  
Divide between two cookie sheets and bake for 1 hour at 250 degrees.  
Stir and rotate cookie sheets 3 times during that hour.

It is SO good and SO easy to make.  
I might even call it healthy ... at least you know EXACTLY what is in it!

1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 1/4 teaspoons season salt
4 1/2 teaspoons Worchestershire Sauce
4 cups Chex or Crispix cereal
2 cups Cheerios
1 cup Goldfish (original recipe calls for pretzels but Mr. K doesn't like them)
1 cup honey roasted peanuts (original recipe called for dry roasted peanuts)

Mix wet ingredients.
Mix dry ingredients.
Combine together and spread on cookie sheets.
Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour - stir every 20 minutes.
Store in gallon Ziploc bag (if it lasts that long LoL).

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

My MIL used to make this. We didn't use cheerios.

Then they started making the mix bags in the stores. They're not nearly as good as this recipe you make at home.

Thanks for reminding me to make some of this.
