This blend of spices rocks! I used this spice blend with my usual chex mix recipe: Plenty of chex cereals, 1 cup raw cashews, 1 small bag of popped popcorn (kettle corn is awesome in chex mix) and I use melted Smart Balance spread instead of oils or butter. Trying to keep the ingredients as healthy as possible, while still making a mix people oooh and awwwwww over! We leave out the pretzels and cheese crackers....nobody really likes that stuff. This recipe didn't call for cayenne pepper, but I added it anyway so I could reduce the amount of salt by half.
This was not as good as I had hoped.
Didn't actually have as much taste as I would have expected give the LARGE amount of spices, but still a good taste. Perhaps a bit too much sugar? i just discovered the key to help mix - just use a large bag (ziploc, etc), dump, and SHAKE. Easy. I live in England so don't actually have Chex so used 5 cups Shreddies and 4 cups cheerios instead.
I used only rice and corn Chex. I added more goldfish crackers instead of using nuts. I baked it at 250 for 45 minutes. Great recipe!
***KEEP IN COVERED CONTAINER(S): be advised that mix cannot remain out in opened bowls for too long because it becomes stale pretty quickly & loses its flavor. See my toned down version, Cheerios & Chex mix...***
Back to the Deviled Chex Mix rec: It's a tasty combo of spices! I only used 2 Tbsp of sugar & added 1/2 tsp of onion pwdr, 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, & two finger pinches of cayenne pepper. I also only used what I had on hand which was 3 cups corn Chex, 3 cups rice Chex, 1 cup Cheerios, & 1 cup peanuts. Only nuke the mix for 2 minutes, stirring after one minute or the nuts will be yuck...
off-topic tip: use your old, big popcorn (or cookie) tins to store & keep cereal fresh. I also keep a cup scoop inside w/the cereal. I bought a box each of rice & corn Chex & keep them mixed up together in one large tin. The other tin I have Cheerios in at the moment. I label the tins, hand printing the cereal name in big letters on printer paper, cut it out, & tape it to one side of the tin. I actually have 3 labels on one tin: Corn Rice Chex, Shredded Wheat, and Marshmallow Mateys. Whichever cereal is in the tin, I have that label facing out. The other tin, I have one label that says: Honey Os or Cheerios or Scooters. The tins store prettily on top of the fridge for quick access to our freshly kept cereals! =)
P.S. I also made our peanuts chewy by soaking them in sugar water (1/2 cup water & 1/2 tbsp sugar) for 10 min.s first, drain well...
i never made a chex mix before this. microwaving proved to be mush easier than baking. plus, the seasonings were great =]
The Chex Mix Taste Much Better Cooked In The OVEN not the Microwave. Gary McCraw
This was okay; not the best Chex Mix I've had, and there are plenty of recipes out there. It has way too much sugar for the amount of spice. It's not "deviled" at all - perhaps with more chili powder, or like other mentioned, adding cayenne. I did not put it in the microwave but baked it like I do seasoned oyster crackers and other mixes - 275 for 20 minutes, stirring once. I use a jelly roll pan for a 24-serving recipe, or a roaster pan when increasing the yield.
