Chex Check

This recipe is so much better than the store bought version- Chex Mix! My mom used to make this along with many many other goodies during Christmas time. So as I got older I helped with this easy task (probably since she knew I couldn't mess it up) Thanks, mom! :) It's a great recipe to make for when people are coming over or an afternoon snack for the kiddos, etc. And it's Hubby approved! He loves it!

Today I'm making rice krispie treats for Hubs to take on his men's trip this weekend. (Check out the link.) I won't be posting about the treats since all you have to do is look on the box.

Chex Mix:

3 cups of corn chex
3 cups of rice chex (I add more of these since Hubs likes them the best)
3 cups of wheat chex
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup garlic bagel bites (break up)
1 cup bite sized pretzels
6 tablespoons of butter or margarine
2-3 tablespoons of Worcestershire
1 1/2 tsp seasoned salt (then give a few more shakes - I don't measure these, just guess)
3/4 garlic powder (then a few more)
1/2 onion powder (few more)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Melt 3 tbls butter in oven while mixing all ingredients in separate bowl EXCEPT the spices and Worcestershire. Melt the other 3 tbls of butter in the microwave. Cut the spice measurements into half and pour in the melted butter. Then stir in 1/2 of the chex mix mixture into the butter mixture. Then add the remaining chex mix mixture into the pan. Pour the remaining butter and spice mixture over the top and stir.
Place in oven for an hour but every 15 or 20 minutes give a little stir. Really easy!
