Tis the season.

It's a party (mix)!
It’s a party (mix)!

When I was growing up, my mom would make Chex party mix every year around Christmas time.  I spent many a New Year’s Eve playing board games with my family – and there was always a big bowl of party mix on the table.

Though I rarely make it, it’s something I identify with the holidays.   Today mom and I made a batch.

Here’s the recipe that’s made the rounds in our family:

Party Mix

1 small box (~14 oz) each:  Wheat Chex, Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Cheerios
1 bag pretzel sticks
2 lbs mixed nuts
1 1/2 lbs butter, melted
3-4 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
Garlic salt

Mix ingredients in big brown paper grocery bag.  Melt butter on low heat on stovetop and stir in worchestershire sauce.  Place dry ingredients in shallow pans.  Pour melted mixture evenly over dry ingredients.

Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.  Sprinkle with garlic salt between stirrings, to taste.
