Chex Mix




total time


1 box (smallest size) rice Chex

1 box (smallest size) wheat Chex

1 box (smallest size) plain Cheerios

2 cups pretzels

Assorted nuts (big container at Costco)

2 teaspoons marjoram

2 tablespoons beau monde

2 tablespoons seasoned salt (Lawry’s)

1 tablespoon old hickory smoked salt

2 1/2 teaspoons summer savory

1 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 3/4 teaspoon onion powder

1 pound butter


In large baking roaster (I use disposable), mix cereal, pretzels, and nuts.

Melt two sticks of butter and add all spices.

Put butter/spice mixture over the top of cereal mixture.

Cut remaining butter into small slices and cover cereal mixture.

Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring gently every 15 minutes.


Marjoram, beau monde, old hickory smoked salt, and summer savory are hard to find. I always order it off Amazon.
