To make Mountain Mama Cooks' recipe for sweet and salty Chex mix, preheat an oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium saucepan, combine 3/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons corn syrup and 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce. Cook on medium heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Stir in 1 teaspoon seasoned salt.
In a large baking pan, combine 3 cups rice Chex cereal, 3 cups honey corn Chex cereal, 3 cups Bugles, 1 1/2 cups butter pretzels and 1 cup roasted, salted mixed nuts. Drizzle the butter and sugar mixture over the cereal mixture. Mix well to ensure coating of the cereal mix with syrup. Bake the mixture for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes, and rotate the pan halfway through baking. Let the mixture cool completely before pouring it into a container.
