After making (and loving) the chocolaty and peanut buttery Chex Muddy Buddies, I wanted to do a savoury recipe test. I choose their Savory Snacktime Chex Mix recipe because I wanted to test the fact that they said you can use any version of their Chex and Cheerios cereals. Oh really??? Even ones with honey??? Sweet and savoury can be fantastic but I am super picky!!!
I melted the butter and added the Worcestershire sauce, paprika and garlic salt.
I added it to the mix of pretzels, cereal, nuts and seeds.
I microwaved for two minutes. Stirred. Microwaved it for two minutes.
Spread the mix all over paper towels to cool. The flavour was… OK but yes, a tad more sweet than savoury.
I added way more Worcestershire sauce, I mean, WAY more! I also sprinkled with a lot of onion powder and some cayenne pepper to help break the sweetness. I baked in a 325F oven for 20 minutes.
My Facebook friend Heather calls this kind of snack crack and I can see why! There is something about this type of mix that is so addictive. We enjoyed it thoroughly done my way. If you are going to be bad, be really bad and douse it with flavour people!
It was a great treat for the long weekend and easy to make. You could cook it in the microwave to keep the kitchen cool because it is getting hot people! Even on the east coast… Finally!
