Recipe for Nuts and Bolts aka: Chex Party Mix

I just made a double batch of chex mix this morning... & toasted our pumpkin seeds using the same seasoning & thought I'd share my version of this yummy snack with you all!

Nuts & Bolts (aka chex party mix by isewcute)


1 stick of margarine
2 Tbsp. Lea & Perrins Worchestershire Sauce
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. celery salt
1 tsp. onion powder
3 cups corn chex
3 cups rice chex
3 cups cheerios...we like them better than the wheat chex in the original recipe.
2 cups mixed nuts...sometimes I just use cashews only...they're soooo good!
2 cups pretzel sticks...broken in half

Melt the margarine in a saucepan & add the seasonings. Blend well with a small wisk. Remove from heat. Mix all the cereals & nuts & pretzels in a large bowl....then spread it out on a couple of baking sheets. Use a basting brush to brush the liquid onto the cereal & nut sure to coat evenly.

Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours... but be sure stir it about every 15 min. or so ... that way it toasts evenly & the seasonings are well blended into the mix.

Let cool & store in an airtight container to maintain freshness. Enjoy!
*I always double this recipe because it goes fast & it's great to share!

My grandma & great aunt used to call this mix 'Nuts and Bolts' was a real treat to go over to their house as a kid & find they had made up a batch!

We call it Nuts and Bolts also! I was thinking about making some early for Thanksgiving, but it's always around at Christmas too.
