Default Ever make Chex Mix?

When I was a kid in the 1960s, my mother made Chex mix. Made from 2 or 3
Chex cereal flavors, pretzels, nuts, and maybe more....

It was mixed and coated with some sort of spicy flavored coating.

But what was that coating?????
was it baked in the oven, or just sprayed on, or what????

I only remember it was very good and tastey......

Yea, today you can buy the mix at any store, but it's dull and lacks
flavor. Its mostly just cereal and a few pretzels.

Mom is gone, so I cant ask her....

Has anyone on here made this stuff?

I wouldn't make it as I don't like it. I think my mom used margarine and
Worcestershire sauce. Surely there is a recipe online. Yep. Although my mom
only used peanuts and not mixed nuts. Pretzel sticks and no bagel chips.

I have made this party food. That spicy taste is from the Worcester sauce. I don't think it's very spicy but it is piquant. The coating consists mostly of sugar and oil. It is mixed into the dry cereal and baked at a low temperature to dry out the sticky mixture.

There is a variation of Chex Mix where the cereal is coated with a mixture of chocolate and peanut and sugar. It's not baked and kids dig it.

These days, I like to make furikake Chex mix which is the hapa-haole version of Chex Mix i.e., half Japanese, half American. It is a most remarkable snack.

Dear Average CLUELESS Person:

Look at a box of Chex cereal, and there is the "recipe" in all its glory...butter, Worcestershire sauce,
seasoned salt...don't know what else if anything...and you can make it yourself. I make it at least
once a year at the holidays. No mystery.

Did it never occur to you to look???

At least the question she asked is about food, a wholly appropriate
subject (more than I can say fer some threads).

Another poster that wants someone else to do their searching for them.
Recipes abound on the internet if they can't be bothered to look at a
box of cereal for the recipe. Lots of variations and I can munch on that
stuff until someone smacks my hand and says 'enough!'

I'm with you, itsjoan...that stuff is addictive, and easily gobbled up without thinking about it, like
when I am reading or watching a movie. ;-)). I confess, when I make it, it is usually mostly
because I want some, not because someone else asked for it.

I think the first I ever had it was when I went to work as a young teenager and
it was at an office Christmas wing-ding. I asked "what's this?" The reply
was "nuts and bolts." I was an immediate fan and I've not heard the term
"nuts and bolts" in ages. When it's on a table, stand back! I'm diving in!

Not to me it isn't. I don't even like to be around when it's baking. Smells
awful. Tastes worse.

Throw some beans and brown rice in the mix; you'll love it.
