"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

3 cups Wheat Chex
3 cups Corn Chex
3 cups Rice Chex
1 cup pretzels
½ cup mixed nuts (optional)
6 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. While oven is preheating, mix the Chex, pretzels and nuts in a large bowl. Once oven is preheated, melt butter in large casserole dish in oven (it helps to cut it up into pieces so that it melts quickly and evenly.) Once butter is melted, pull it out of the oven and add garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt and Worcestershire sauce.

Add 1/3 of the Chex mixture and stir. Add another 1/3 of the mix and stir. Add the last 1/3 of the mix and stir. Cook uncovered in oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Take out of oven and spread on paper towels to dry. If you want it saltier, this is the time to sprinkle more on.

If you only have room in your bowl or casserole pan for 2 cups of each Chex that’s okay. Keep the same amount of butter and Worcestershire but put a little less spices in. Enjoy! This is perfect for football games, larger parties or anytime you have the munchies!
