Granny’s Savory Chex Mix

This recipe is so nostalgic for me because my Granny always made this during Thanksgiving and Christmas! There were bowls of it set out and we would snack on it throughout the day. Especially during the holidays when there are SO many sweet treat, this savory Chex mix is a nice break in the sweet. haha


2 cans (14 oz) mixed nuts

2 boxes Cheese its

2 boxes Rice Chex

2 boxes Corn Chex

2 Boxes Crispix

2 bags stick pretzels

Melt together:

10 sticks butter

20 dashes Tabasco

12 TBS Worcestershire sauce

4 TBS chili powder

3 TBS Italian Seasoning

4 TBS Celery Salt

4 TBS Garlic Powder

Mix dry ingredients in large unscented trash bag (I know it sounds weird but I haven’t found a better method because its a LOT of stuff haha). Pour melted mixture over Chex and mix. Bake on cookie sheet for 1 hour at 275 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes.

It really helps if you have double ovens to speed the process up. I do not, so this takes me a good 5 hours to complete since I can only do two sheets at a time.
