@coffeegal85:  I only know how to make puppy chow using Chex, lol. It’s my go-to “mommy, can you make me this?” snack because only mommy knows how to make it 🙂

I am not much help, but have you tried Chex website? Usually the Chex recipe I always see at holiday parties included a packet of Hidden Valley ranch mix.

Hopefully someone can give you a good recipe 🙂

3 tablespoons margarine or butter 
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (use a heaping tsp for more flavor)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder (again I use heaping)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
6 cups Crispix
1 cup mixed nuts
1cup pretzels

Melt butter, add garlic and onion powder, lemon juice, and Worcestershire and stir.  Pour over cereal, nuts, and pretzels that are spread in a 9 x 13 pan.  Bake in preheated 250 degree oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.  Enjoy!!!!

I use the original as that’s my favorite!  I do it a little differently, I do 4 cups of each cereal and then 2 cups of peanuts.  I’m not a fan of the pretzels or bagel chips in them.  And then I double the butter/sauce/seasonings.

I do it in the oven because it makes my house smell yummy.

This is the “original.”  It’s also on the side of the Chex box FYI

3 cups Corn chex

3 cups Wheat chex

3 cups Rice chex

1 cup mixed nuts or peanuts

1 cup pretzels

1 cup bagel chips

6T melted butter

2 T worcestershire

1.5 t seasoning salt

3/4 t garlic powder

1/2 t onion powder

Melt butter, stir in seasonings.  Pour over cereal/nuts.  Stir until evenly coated.  Bake at 250 degrees for one hour, stiring every 15 minutes.

I don’t have one, but I want to follow this post. I have seen one on the back with taco seasoning that I’m trying this week! Will let you know how it comes out.

I have sweet recipes if you want them (caramel and white chocolate), but for the savory one I just go with the one on the box.
