***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...
