Grandma Jo’s Nuts & Bolts (AKA Chex Mix)

3 cups Corn Chex or generic cereal

3 cups Rice Chex or generic cereal

3 cups Crispix cereal

1 cup mixed nuts

1 cup cashews

1 cup bite-size pretzels

1 cup cheerios or generic cereal

6 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce + plus more

1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt

1-2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

In large pan heat butter, Worcestershire sauce and all the seasonings. Once they are all mixed up nicely, add the nuts and pretzels. Once you toss all of that loveliness with the yummy coating, begin to SLOWLY add the cereal one cup at a time. Once you get to the cheerios you may find you don’t have enough coating. Don’t worry! Add a couple of tablespoons of butter and a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to a microwavable small bowl and cook until butter is melted. Add to pan and stir. Once everything is good and coated, spread mixture on one to two (already prepped with cooking spray) baking sheets. Place in the oven for fifteen minutes. Pull out cooking sheet and stir yumminess to make sure that everyone piece has a chance to get baked appropriately. Bake for 15 more minutes and do that same thing. Do that two more times (total is an hour) and you will find the most delectable, crunchy holiday treat this side of heaven. Happy Holidays!
