  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar

Instructions

Get Prepped

  • Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  • Prepare a large baking sheet (11×17 inches or larger) for easy spreading.

Make the Seasoned Salt (if needed): In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the ingredients for the seasoned salt.

The Big Mix: Grab a very large mixing bowl to combine the Rice Chex, Corn Chex, gluten-free O’s, peanuts, and gluten-free pretzels.

Melt and Spice

  • Melt the butter in a medium bowl (microwave or stovetop).
  • Whisk the Worcestershire sauce and 2 teaspoons of the seasoned salt into the melted butter.

Flavor Time: Pour the spiced butter mixture over the cereal mix and toss gently but thoroughly to coat evenly.

Bake and Stir

  • Spread the Chex mix onto your prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes for even crisping.

Cool and Enjoy

  • After baking, let the Chex mix cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Tips

  • Customization: Add your favorite gluten-free snacks – crackers, bagel chips, etc.
  • Spice It Up: A dash of cayenne or hot sauce adds a kick.
  • Slow Cooker Option: Combine ingredients in a slow cooker, add the butter mixture, and cook on low for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Cool before enjoying!
