Hi everyone - one of the snacks I miss most is Chex Mix.  Despite the high calories :-)

 

I'm sure it's easy to replicate, considering that most Chex is gluten-free, but has anyone got a good 'recipe' to share?  Hoping to make up a batch this weekend.

 

Thanks!

You can make most of these. Just sub gluten-free pretzels, don't use the wheat Chex, gluten-free soy sauce, etc

Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

This is a combo of the Chex mix and Crispix mix original recipes.  You can either do it all in the microwave in a big bowl, or you can do it in a 9 x 13 pan in the oven.

 

Ingredients:

3 - 6 T butter or margarine

4 t - 2 T worcestershire sauce (make sure it's gluten-free).  I like more, so I go with the 2 T.

2 t lemon juice (skip if you don't have it)

garlic powder, onion powder, and/or seasoned salt to taste

7 - 9 cups of cereal (rice and corn Chex).  For the higher amount, use the 6 T of butter.

1 c pretzels

1 c nuts

 

By microwave: melt the butter in the big bowl, add the worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and seasonings.  Combine the dry ingredients in another bowl, because if you add them to the wet stuff while you measure them out, some of them will get soaked and some of them will stay dry.  Add the dry ingredients and immediately mix thoroughly - it will take a while to distribute the wet ingredients through all of that dry stuff and you want it to be as even as possible.  Microwave for 5 - 6 minutes, but it is essential to stir every minute or two or it will burn on the bottom.  It's done when you're not turning up wet pieces of cereal (or very few).

 

In the oven: put the pan in the oven with the butter, and let the butter melt while the oven preheats to 250.  Add the other wet and seasoning ingredients to the melted butter.  Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, then let it bake for 15 minutes.  Mix again, bake 15 min.  Mix again and bake again for 15 min.  By the end of this all of the wet cereal should be dry and crispy, if not, give it another stir and another 15 min.

 

Let it cool, transfer it to a bag or container, and hide it from your family.

I use a mixture of the following:

4 cups Rice Chex

4 cups Corn Chex

4 cups Whole O's (Nature's Path)

4 cups Pretzels (Glutino)

2 cups Mixed Nuts (I use store brand; check for gluten-free)

 

Melt a stick and a half of butter. Add 6  Tbspns Lea and Perrins, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/4 tsp garlic salt. Bake (I use the bottom of a turkey roaster) at 200 degrees for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

 

Put this in zip lock bags when it is thoroughly cool. It will keep a long time.
