Chex Party Mix – it is easy to make.

Home made Chex Mix is easy to make, so you don’t have to buy the prepackaged stuff. In fact the kind you make in the oven tastes better!  My Mom always made this at Christmas.

    I’m not a big fan of pretzels, but I used the new Pretzel Crisps (broken up) when I made this.

    I add Seasoned Salt and Tabasco to mine as well as Bacon grease and Cheerios. One large box of all the cereals, one lb of stick Pretezels, one lb of cashews and pecans each toasted before adding to the mix. Makes about 5 one gallon bags of munching.

    I have never been a fan of the corn Chex. I use the rice version – if that suits your taste. Alternate adding cereals to the mix helps, a cup of wheat Chex first. They take longer to coat. Also, I will add a cup of regular Cheerios to the mix, increasing the butter a tbsp. or two to make sure all are coated. For the pretzels, I find that the waffle pretzels are a nice alternative. I have made this for several holiday seasons and it always is a winner. Just wanted to put in my two cents. Thank you for the post!

      I appreciate your suggestions! I love the wheat chex the most, sometimes I double up on those, and I am not a big fan of nuts in my chex mix. One thing is certain, I like this version so much better than the stuff in the bag!
