THE ORIGINAL CHEX MIX RECIPE
Corn Chex 1 box
Rice Chex 1 box
Cheerios 1 box
Pretzels-stick 1 bag
Pretzels-twist 1 bag
Mixed Nuts small can
Cashews small can
Pecans half pound
Vegetable Oil 2 1/2 cups
Worcestershire Sauce ?
Garlic Powder ?
Garlic Salt ?
Pre-Heat Oven to 250
I use two 9 x 13 nonstick cake pans, and one larger roasting pan.
That's how much these ingredients will make.
Layer the ingredients in this order:
Drizzle on the vegetable oil. Just under 3/4 cup for each of the 9 x 13 pans,
just under 1 cup for the roasting pan. ( I have cut it back to 1/2 cup
for the 9 x 13s, and 3/4 cup for the roaster, with good results.)
It will look like too much oil, but this will be absorbed during baking
if you are a good stirrer, and bring the bottom pieces up to the top.
I don't measure the 3 ingredients below. Good luck!
Shake on some Worcestershire Sauce
Sprinkle with garlic powder.
Sprinkle with garlic salt.
Stir the mixture gently before placing in the oven
BAKE AT 250 degrees for 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.
Take the pans out for stirring, and rotate them when returning to oven
You can't speed up the process, or use a different temperature.
Don't taste the pieces that fall out, because they won't get their full flavor
until the last 15 minutes of cooking, and you might be tempted
to add more of the ingredients, and ruin it.
