Hi ya'll!  This is my all time favorite salty Christmastime goodie.  Usually I don't get overly excited about savory foods, but even the thought of this Chex Mix makes my mouth water.  Grandmother Bennett bumped up the original spices and came up with a mix that is out of this world.  Absolute perfection!  

I always double the recipe when I make it so I can add in lots of Cheez-It's and Bugles.  

Here's what you'll need:
12 tablespoons of butter
6 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
5 teaspoons of Lawry's seasoned salt
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of onion powder
3 cups Corn Chex
3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Multigrain Cheerios
4 1/2 cups Cheez-It's
4 1/2 cups Bugles
2 cups mixed nuts
2 cups pretzels
2 cups garlic bagel chips or rye chips

Preheat the oven to 250.  Put butter in a roasting pan and melt in the oven.  While the butter is melting combine the cereals, chips, nuts, etc.  Remove roasting pan from the oven when butter is completely melted and stir in the seasonings.  Dump in the cereal mixture and stir to coat.  Cook for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.  When done spread the mixture out on paper towels to cool.  Once cool store in an airtight container or baggie.

Beware - this stuff is addictive!  Share with your friends and families.  They will love you!
