This Ultimate Chex Mix really is the ultimate! It’s so tasty. This wonderful mixture takes only a few minutes to toss together. It does take an hour to bake, but that is unattended time, so you don’t have to be in the kitchen all that time. It really is easy peasy.
This mixture is a great movie time snack, and, also, a great snack to take to work or school. Oooh, they might be nice for a picnic, too!
HELPFUL HINTS FOR THE ULTIMATE CHEX MIX
Many people use wheat Chex when making Chex mix. I don’t use it, because for some odd reason, the wheat Chex seem to absorb too much of the seasoning. I just don’t like it, but if you do, then toss them in.
Feel free to exchange ingredients for something you prefer, BUT, keep in mind the additions still need to equal about 12 cups, otherwise you will need to adjust the butter and seasonings.
Since I use pretzel sticks, I break them in half.
- Corn Chex
- Rice Chex
- Oatmeal squares – I used Quaker – brown sugar flavor
- Cheese-its – white cheddar flavor
- Rye chips – I used Gardetto’s
- Pretzels – I use Synder’s of Hanover Twisted pretzel sticks in the “seasoned” flavor
- Butter – real butter ALWAYS
- Worcestershire sauce
- Seasoned salt – I use Lawry’s
- Granulated onion powder
- Granulated garlic powder
