Ingredients

  • 6 cups toasted Chex or Crispix cereal (either corn, wheat, rice…or a combination!)
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 3 cups pretzels
  • 2 cups Cheerios
  • 6 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. butter (your preference – regular, Smart Balance, etc.)
  • 3 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1 bag of candy corn or pumpkins (optional)

Instructions

  1. Oven Directions: Heat oven to 250°F. In large bowl, mix cereals, nuts, and pretzels; set aside. In small microwavable bowl, melt butter and mix in Worcetershire sauce and seasoned salt. Whisk with a fork until salt is dissolved. Then gradually spoon or pour the sauce over the cereal mixture, stirring it constantly to make sure that it is fairly evenly distributed. Then spread mixture on a greased cookie sheet, and place in the oven. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool, about 15 minutes. (Optional: Mix in candy corns once the mixture has cooled.) Store in airtight container.
  2. Microwave Directions: In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals, nuts, and pretzels; set aside. In small microwavable bowl, melt butter and mix in Worcetershire sauce and seasoned salt.

Microwave uncovered on “High” for 6-8 minutes, thoroughly stirring every 2 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. (Optional: Mix in candy corns once the mixture has cooled.)
