The original Chex party mix is a combination of three Chex cereals, mixed nuts, bite-sized pretzels and bite-sized bagel chips. The party mix is seasoned with butter or margarine, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings.
The recipe for Chex party mix calls for 3 cups each of Corn Chex, Wheat Chex and Rice Chex. Also included is 1 cup each of mixed nuts, bite-size pretzels and bite-size bagel chips. Combine these six ingredients in a large microwavable bowl, and set aside. In a small microwavable bowl, place 6 tablespoons of butter or margarine, and microwave it for approximately 40 seconds or until it melts. Remove butter from microwave and add in 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt, 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon onion powder. Mix ingredients together with the butter, and then pour the butter mixture over the cereal blend. Stir everything together in the large bowl and make sure everything is evenly coated. Microwave the whole mix for five to six minutes, and stir it every two minutes. Once the party mix has been fully heated and stirred, lay the mix on paper towels to cool. Once the Chex party mix is room temperature, place it in an airtight container to keep it tasting fresh for days.
