Get Your Snack On!

As previously promised... here's my recipe for chex mix. I wanted to make it from scratch this year, but wasn't impressed by the recipes on the box so I made my own. I'm not going to lie - it's addictive! I used a blend of asian and mexican flavors to spice it up and add a little heat. It's so good. Mix up a batch share with friends or bring some along as a hostess gift for the next holiday party you're attending!

Heat oven to 250ยบ

In a large roasting pan combine:

  • 2 cups Rice Chex
  • 2 cups Wheat Chex
  • 2 cups Mixed Nuts
  • 2 cups Cheddar Bunny Crackers
  • 2 cups Bite Sized Pretzels
  • 2 cups Garlic Sesame Bites

Set mixture aside.

In a medium sauce pan combine:

  • 5 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Sriracha Hot Sauce (Adjust amount to taste)
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons Seasoned Salt
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Mexican Chili Snack Powder*

Warm over medium heat stirring constantly until butter is melted and spices are aromatic. Pour pan contents over cereal mixture and then stir until evenly coated. Bake in oven for 1 hour stirring every 15 min. Cool on paper towels & store in an airtight container.

* The Mexican Chili Snack Powder I picked up at my local bodega. It's the same powder they sprinkle over Mexican street corn, an amazing blend of salt, dried red peppers and a little sugar. I used a brand called Znax that I found in the condiment isle. I use it on everything from steamed vegetables to popcorn. It's definitely worth the effort to find it!
