This stuff is evil. Bad. Horrible. I cannot be left alone in the house with it ~takes a ragged breath and hangs her head in shame~ I love this stuff! Mama and Grandmama both have their own recipes for Chex mix but today I’m bringing you Mama’s because it is the quickest, easiest, and has the least amount of mess involved. If y’all are anything like me, this time of year we could use more recipes like that!
You will need: Seasoned salt, Worcestershire sauce, Mixed nuts, margarine, and two different kinds of Chex Mix cereal (whatever cranks yer tractor).
Did you know? The original Chex mix recipe was introduced in 1955 by Chex Cereals as a means of boosting the cereal’s popularity amid the growing market of sugar sweetened kid’s cereals. It was an instant hit and variations have been party favorites ever since!
Place stick of margarine and seasoned salt in a large, microwave safe mixing bowl.
Add Worcestershire sauce.
Now close your eyes and see if you can spell that..
Microwave that until melted, stir it up a bit.
While it is microwaving do a little dance while singing at the top of your lungs just to embarrass your children.
(Bonus points if they have friends over!)
Pour in nuts.
Stir them up.
Marvel at all of the varieties and see if you can count as many varieties of nuts in your family.
Add in chex mix.
Now nuke that for 2:00 minutes.
Nuke for 2:00 minutes more
Nuke for 2 minutes more.
Somebody hand me the easy button, we’re done!
