Super Kicked-Up Chex Mix

Hee, Hee...I have to giggle. Besides hearing all the time, "Oh My!" "Wow!" "This is so good!" "Oh, Mary!". You know, all those expressions that people say when you've pleased their palette. People say "you made that?" or "you make your own...?" Yes, people, I make my own Chex Mix. And once you try it once, you will see why! Homemade has way more flavor and it really takes no time at all. Plus, you get to pick what you put in it. For instance I don't care for the wheat chex, those weird fake bread-stick thingees and the rye bread chips. But I love dry roasted peanuts, sesame sticks, cheese nips, and club cracker mini's. See now, you're starting to see why homemade is better than bagged! But wait, there's more...mine...made with freshly grated garlic! And kicked up with a little or a lot of Franks Red Hot Sauce! Oh ya! If you're not into heat, no problem just a few dashes, you won't even notice the heat, just the deliciousness! But if you love the heat, double the amount!

Super Kicked-Up Chex Mix


1 cup pretzels
1 cup Club Cracker mini's (an amazing invention)
1 cup Corn Chex
1 cup Rice Chex
1 cup cheese crackers
1 cup salted roasted peanuts
1 c sesame sticks
(OR 7 cups of your favorite items)
1/3 cup butter
2 Tbl Worcestershire sauce
3 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
1 tsp seasoned salt (I use Lawry's)
1/2 tsp minced dried onion (you could use onion powder if you want)
1 tsp Franks Red Hot sauce (more or less)

Heat oven to 250. In a large bowl mix all the nuts, crackers, cereal etc... In a small microwave-safe bowl add the butter and all the rest of the ingredients. Microwave until the butter is melted, usually no more 45 seconds. mix well and slowly pour over the cracker mixture. Stir until the butter mixture is even distributed over the cracker mixture. Evenly spread on a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 1 hr, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy! Store in an air tight container.

Party On Friends! Enjoy!
