  • 4 cups wheat chex cereal
  • 3 cups mini pretzels
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • Garlic powder, to taste (we use a lot - like 1+ tablespoons, haha)
  • Salt, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and line two large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, toss chex cereal and pretzels with the melted butter, vegetable oil, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Pour onto prepared baking sheets in an even layer and bake for 1 hour, tossing halfway through.

Feel free to add whatever other ingredients you may like in your chex mix. Some suggestions are: nuts (cashews, peanuts, almonds, etc.), dried fruit, chocolate chips, M&M's, and more!
