Chex Mix (Crock Pot)
Kiy Note: Gina emailed me this morning asking if this was on my recipe box yet. Nope, I kept forgetting to put it up. Thanks for the reminder Gina! Oh, and we love this but I have to add extra Worcestershire sauce, at least double. Jeff and Emi like their Chex Mix extra spicy.

The Ingredients:
  1. 5 Cups General Mills Rice Chex Cereal
  2. 1-2 cups of dry roasted peanuts (salted or not, your choice)
  3. 2 cups pretzel sticks (I used Glutino)
  4. 1/2 t onion powder
  5. 1/2 t seasoned salt
  6. 3 T butter
  7. 1 1/2 T Worcestershire Sauce (Lea and Perrins is GF)

The Directions:
  1. Put the butter into the bottom of your crockpot.
  2. Turn it on low
  3. Add the onion powder and seasoned salt
  4. Add the Worcestershire sauce
  5. Add dry ingredients
  6. Stir. If the butter is still clumpy, it's okay
  7. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours, stirring every 45 min or so

Dump out onto a cookie sheet to cool. (Kiy Note: Jeff is usually standing there, picking out yummies to eat at this point, even though it's too hot to handle.)

Serve and enjoy.

The Verdict: We ate every last ounce of this in one day. It is seriously addicting. The kids liked it immensely, and have requested me to make it again today. But with less peanuts.

The recipe that I have written here has less butter than the original Chex Party Mix recipe, and I was pleased that it was still enough to coat the cereal, peanuts, and pretzels nicely without a layer of grease left on my hands. Or the kids hands. Because then the couch stays clean.
