Kicked Up Chex Mix

I've teamed up with my friend Lauren to bring you another fun game day snack! I love Chex Mix and didn't realize how easy it is to make at home...not to mention how much Chex Mix you get from the recipe. I gave more than half of it away and still had a huge bag for myself! You can find the full recipe and beautiful glamour shots on Lauren's blog, here, but here's a little preview!

You'll need:
9 cups Chex cereal (you can use corn, rice, wheat, or a combo!)
2 cups pretzels (any shape/size that you like)
1 cup Cheerio's
1 cup peanuts (i like the large cocktail kind, but had dry roasted on-hand)
2 sticks butter, melted
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp seasoned salt
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
*Have fun with this! Use whatever seasoning combinations you like! There are no rules with Chex Mix...just butter. You need the butter.

Melt the butter in a bowl or measuring cup (for easy pouring) and add in the rest of the seasonings. Mix until well combined and pour it over the cereal mixture. 
Turn out onto a large baking sheet and spread out in a single layer. Bake at 325 for an hour, stirring the cereal every 20 minutes. 

These are buttery, salty, addictive...delicious! Check out the full recipe on Lauren's blog and tag us in your pictures! :)


*If you add a handful of candy corn to this finished mix it will blow your mind! I LOVE the salty sweet combo and it makes this a festive fall treat!
