Wilma Denton


2 Boxes Slim Pretzels
1 box each -Wheat chex, Rice Chex and Corn chex
2 lbs Pecans whole or pieces
1 can cashews
(You can use peanuts or mixed nuts also)
1 lb. margarine, melted
1 cup oil
3 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
4 Tbsp Accent
2 tsp. Celery Salt
1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Tabasco Sauce (amount is optional)
2 Tbsp. Allspice
1 Tbsp red pepper (amount is opt)

Place the chex cereal and the nuts, and the pretzels in large aluminum foil baking pans. I split the ingredients between 2 of the largest you can get. Melt the margarine, add the remaining ingredients and pour over the chex mix, nuts and pretzels. Stir well to coat all of the dry ingredients.

Place in a 200 degree oven for 4 hours. Stir with a wooden spoon every 30 minutes. Be sure to stir from the bottom so everything gets well coated.
