'Tis the Season!

Every year I make a few batches of Chex mix for party favors, hostess gifts or treats for friends. Because who doesn't love Chex mix?!
I like to use:

- Rice Chex
- Corn Chex
- Wheat Chex
- Pretzels (I like the straight ones)
- Cashews
- Cheese crackers (like Cheez-Its)

My mother-in-law's is always the best so I copy what she does for the sauce. Follow the recipe for the Original Chex Mix but double the butter and add extra Worcestershire and garlic powder. Also add 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper for a little spice. I always cook mine the old-fashioned way, in the oven, rather than the microwave. It lasts longer if you put it in the fridge, and my mother-in-law says you can even freeze it if you want to make extra for down the road. Delicious!

This is not chex mix, it is delicious crack mix. Colleen gave this out and i ate my bag in the car on the way home.
