Christmas Wouldn't Be Christmas Without Chex Party Mix

The Christmas holidays would not be the same unless there was Chex Party Mix around. The recipe on today’s Chex boxes is called “original”, but it includes bagel chips. There was no such thing as bagel chips in the 1950’s when this recipe first appeared! This is my version, better than the original. It is spicier and has more nuts!
A staple at every Christmas at our house in Willis, Michigan.
Adam’s “Original” Chex Party Mix

1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
3 cups corn Chex cereal
3 cups rice Chex cereal
1 1/2 cups cheese tidbits
1 large can deluxe mixed nuts (I use the one without peanuts)
1 cup pecans
1 1/2 cups pretzel twists1/2 cup pine nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Melt butter in saucepan. Add Worcestershire sauce and spices. In large roasting pan, add about half of the dry ingredients. Drizzle with half of the butter. Add remaining dry ingredients and drizzle with remaining butter. Gently mix until coated. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Allow to sit until completely cool. Store in airtight container.
