What You Need:
9 cups Chex cereal (I used equal parts corn, rice, and wheat Chex)
2 cups pretzels
1 cup Cheerios
1 cup peanuts (or a nut you would prefer)
1/3 cup (6 Tablespoons) butter, melted and hot
1 Tablespoon seasoned salt
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
It is good. I would even say it would be fun to toss in a few other ingredients when it is all done like M&Ms or if you are feeling you want no chocolate I like blond raisin and dried cranberries.
- Add cereal, pretzels, cheerios and nuts to the bowl of a slow cooker.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together butter and seasoned salt until the salt is dissolved. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce until combined.
- Drizzle the sauce evenly over the top of the cereal mixture. Toss for about 1 minute, or until the mixture is evenly combined.
- Cover and slow cook on low for 3 hours, stirring at the 1 hour, 2 hour and 2.5 hour marks so that the mixture does not burn. Then spread the mixture out onto a few baking sheets or parchment paper in an even layer until it cools to room temperature. Serve, or store in a sealed container for up to 3 weeks.
For something a little less traditional and more and a bit more healthy try the Cranberry Orange Cinnamon recipe I posted last year which is our favorite and one we make every year at Christmas and then again in March when we have guests who feel the need to snack non-stop.
