Chex Mix Recipe

Well, my daughter has another event at her museum this week, so I am cooking for 100 again. Since it is Fall, I thought Chex mix would be good to serve. This stuff is addictive.

This is my cast of characters. If you are a normal cook, you might want to make a fraction of this. Though it does last a long time stored in zip lock bags.

See what I mean? You might want to just use 1/5 of this recipe.

I will give you the single recipe measurements. To two sticks of butter. add 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce.

I use Gator Hammock hot sauce but you can use whatever kind you like best. Add it to taste, depending on how hot you want this. If you use a teaspoon it won't be too spicy.

You can leave it out entirely if you want to.

I also add Red Hot. I like the flavor and it isn't too spicy.

And now they make it thick too!

Add a tablespoon of celery salt.

Add 1 tablespoon of granulated garlic and 1 of onion. Add some salt and pepper. Mix it all together. You can dip a pretzel in to taste test.

I use Bugles, cashews, potato sticks, pretzel sticks, bagel chips, rice Chex and corn Chex and fried onions. I also used those square pretzels this time which were very good in the mix. Oh, and Fritos too!

See that tray on the bottom? Not a good idea. It burned.

I made 8 trays of this. It bakes for a couple hours in a 300 degree oven. I turn it over occasionally with a flipper.

Make sure it is totally cool before packing it away.

I also made her a few wreathes for the party.

I covered a straw wreath with moss.

Then I glued gourds all over it. I need a bow but I don't have the right ribbon yet.

Then I made a sunflower one too. Lots more cooking to do over the next few days!
