Introduction: Baked Chex Mix
I love my mom's homemade Chex Mix, but she lives two hours away and I don't have a microwave so I had to figure out a workaround for that. It's a little more time consuming without a microwave, but I think it tastes better and has a more satisfying crunch. Chex Mix is a great customizable snack.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 box rice chex
1 box corn chex
Pretzels, nuts etc. optional
1-2 sticks of melted unsalted butter (start with 1 stick and add more as needed)
1/4 cup seasoning salt (start with less and add more, this is a flavor preference)
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce(start with less and add more, this is a flavor preference)
Step 2: Mix
In a large bowl add your Chex cereal, I usually do 1/2 and 1/2 at a time. Melt 1 stick of butter and then pour over the cereal. Add in Worcestershire sauce and seasoning salt, a little at a time. Mix well and taste. Add more Worcestershire sauce and seasoning salt as needed. I usually add a lot more than I probably need, but I also like the strong flavor.
Repeat with the rest of the cereal.
Step 3: Prep for Baking
Preheat oven to 225-250.
On a lined cookie sheet, spread out the Chex mixture. I usually use 2 baking sheets when I make Chex mix.
Step 4: Bake
You want to bake the mix for 45-60 minutes. Every 15-20 minutes I use a spatula to turn the cereal over for more even baking---I will also do multiple taste tests.
When the Chex is done baking, remove from oven and let cool---if you can. I usually don't.
I store the Chex mix in air tight containers for up to a week.
