I love Mary's snack mix!

I've had a potty training two year old at home this last week, so I decided to make her some fun snacks! One of my FAVORITE treats is the snack mix my Great Aunt Mary makes- I can't remember ever visiting them without enjoying some of it!

For this recipe you will need: Wheat Chex, Goldfish Crackers, Pretzels, Cheetos, Cheerios, Worcestershire Sauce, Butter, Garlic Powder and Nuts if desired. I leave the nuts out to make it kid friendly.

In a very large bowl, mix 4 cups of Cheerios, 3 cups of Wheat Chex, the whole bag of goldfish, the whole bag of pretzels and 3/4 bag of Cheetos. In a heatproof bowl, mix 1 1/2 sticks of butter with 1 TBS garlic powder and 2 TBS Worcestershire Sauce and pour over the mixture tossing well to coat.

Put the mixture onto a couple of large baking sheets and bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes- stirring every 15 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight container. I love this even more than Chex Mix!!! Don't take any shortcuts and try to microwave it instead, it makes the Cheetos stale. And's super addicting!

  1. Looks simple, yet tasty! My mom sent me some things from The Calico Bean that I just got in the mail yesterday. I am going to share them on the blog this week after I take some photos. I can't wait to go back there!
