Recipe: Holiday Chex Mix, 2 Ways

Merry Christmas to everyone! Hope you are spending today with family and friends, wrapping, baking, and of course eating and drinking! I mixed up these Holiday Chex Mixes to have on hand to snack on and they turned out so well! They are great to have around on Christmas, New Years or really anytime :)

Dry mix:

3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Wheat Chex
2 cups Cheez-Its (optional for the sweet version)
2 cups pretzels
2 cups Bugles

Original Version

6 Tb butter
2 Tb Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt

Sweet Brown Sugar Cinnamon Version

6 Tb butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tb cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
sprinkle of nutmeg
Holiday sprinkles

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. In large bowl combine all snack ingredients.
2. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat, whisking frequently. You can either choose to just melt the butter in a few minutes, or leave it longer and let it brown (I like this way!)
3. Remove butter from heat and pour into a small bowl. Add sugar and spices of your choice. Pour mixture over cereal mix and combine well.
4. Spread onto cookie sheet and place in the oven for about 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes or so. Let cool before diving in!
