Spread on paper towels for about 15 minutes to cool. Store in air tight container. I taste is about 1/2 way through cooking to see if it need anything. I adjust according to taste. Enjoy

I remember my Mom making this, and letting us kids help, back in the 60's when the 'grownups' would get together for a party. Dunno if it had the exact same ingredients, but it sure was good, and still is today. Of course, it was baked in the oven, as we had no microwave, and it was one of those delicious smells that make great memories that would come out of the family kitchen. If you have kids, let them help make it, because that makes it taste so much better!

The Original. Simply the best. El Primo. "It's all good" but THIS is the Mix Mama Makes. I remember this made in my house for the first time on New Year's Eve 1979. I was 8. I still remember that night, and that Chex Mix! It's a staple every Christmas and New Years....30 years later! (note: we never had bagel chips in 1980, so we leave them out in our house now.)

Thanks to Candycorner for the oven-baked instructions. . . trust me - when this first came out - we didn't HAVE a microwave!!!

I always double the topping except the butter 1 1/2, so if I put extra ingredients like using up a box of cereal, or honey mustard pretzels it is good. It comes out better than the bag that way.

I don't know what I did wrong but my batch came out tasting like dry cereal. It tasted nothing like the bags of %0d%0aChex Mix. There was not enough butter and seasonings to coat the 9 plus cups of dry ingredients. I will try it again by cutting the cereals and nuts to half the recipe and leaving the seasoning as they are. I was very disappointed it did not taste like the store bought Chex Mix.

This recipe is a total hit with the whole family! Every year we end up making batches and batches for family and friends.

I have been using this for years. I ususally triple the recipe and have two full roasting pans in my oven going at once. Since I make so much I generally just bake it in a 250 degree oven and stir it every 10 -15 minutes for an hour. Ymmmm. It is great either way - oven or microwave. I usually just use the cereal, pecans and small cheese crackers, rather than the pretzels and mixed nuts. I just put in what my family and guests love.

My family loves this recipe. Kids have been asking for it every year at Christmas. They make a great snack when we're decorating the tree. I usually make this recipe while they're in school. Then, I'll gather some Christmas music. Before we start, we unplug the phones & just enjoy quality family time.
