Holiday Chex Mix!

Nothing special with this fact, I think it is a modified version of what you will find on any chex cereal box. For an extra bold flavor simply double all of the ingredients (keeping the cereal, pretzels and peanuts the same).  

For a more formal party, I may go for the roasted chickpeas recipe or spicy nuts.  But, Thanksgiving is supposed to be about tradition and flavors that bring back great memories.  For the Kraegers, Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without it.  


  • 2 c each: rice, wheat and corn chex cereal
  • 1 c pretzel sticks
  • 1/2 c peanuts (optional)
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 3 T Worcestershire sauce (our more if you like it spicy/bold)
  • 1 T garlic powder
  • 1 T Lawry’s seasoned salt
  • 3-4 dashes of Tabasco sauce
  • Other possible spices: rosemary, mustard powder, thyme



Melt butter in microwave proof casserole tray (lasagna pan). While butter is melting, put all chex cereal, pretzels and peanuts in a large zip loc bag and mix around. Add remaining ingredients to melted butter and stir. Pour cereal over butter mixture and coat with a wooden spoon. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir (this is to make sure the coating gets over all the cereal). Repeat this 2 more times (for a total of 6 minutes in microwave).

Remove from microwave and cool on paper towels. Serve warm or cool.
