Cheesy Chex Mix!

Hey there!  :)  This holiday season I've been working on perfecting my own 'home made' chex mix.  I put quotes around that because most mixes (including mine) don't require home making anything; you just mix pre-made things together in sauce and bake it.  It's still delicious, just not super home made-y (oh well right?!).  

Tonight I made the recipe below and it turned out so good that I wanted to share it with you!  Super easy to make!!  It's a little cheesy and I'm sure you could make it more so by adding even more cheese-flavored goodies to the mix.

Jen's Cheesy Chex Mix :-)

Wet ingredients:
-3 Tablespoons of butter or margarine (I use can't believe its not butter)
-1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
-3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
-1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
-1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Dry ingredients:
-1 cup broken up* mini pretzels
-1 cup broken up* cheddar sun chips
-1 cup broken up* cheddar bagel chips
-1 cup of cheddar gold fish crackers
-1 and 1\2 cups of rice Chex
-1 and 1\2 cups of corn Chex
(*Broken up = pieces roughly the same size as the Chexes)

Heat oven to 250°.  Melt the butter, sauce, and seasonings in the microwave (30 or so seconds).  Whisk the mixture together and set aside.

In a large bowl mix Chexes and half of the other prepared snack mixes together.  Stir in the sauce mixture and coat the Chex mixture.  When most of the mix is coated, add in the rest of the prepared snack mixes and stir to combine.  

Pour mix into an un-greased 13x9-inch pan and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.  Spread your Chex mix on paper towels to cool for about 15 minutes and enjoy some deliciousness!  Store in airtight container.  

Happy New Year!
