Nutty Snack Mix

I prsonally LOVE salty snacks. AND I love Chex mix. But there's never enough nuts IN Chex Mix. And I didn't have any Chex cereal and I didn't feel like buying any. But I had Crispix. So I decided to make up my own nonsense. And I believe in Deluxe Mixed Nuts instead of the ones that are 49.999% peanuts.

Then you just need some butter, soy sauce, Worchestershire sauce -YES I know that's spelled wrong. I LIKE butchering that word!, Tabasco sauce, Lawry's and garlic powder.

Melt the butter with all the other stuff in a small pan on the stove.

Pour it over the Crispix and nuts in a big bowl and mix it well.

Spread onto a baking sheet or two and bake it until it's all good and crunchy.

Here 'tis:
1/4 C. butter
2 T. soy sauce
1 - 1  1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco sauce - I used 8 drops of the green stuff (mild jalapeno kind) and 6 of the regular red kind
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 (21 oz.) can Deluxe mixed nuts -minus the ones you couldn't resist eating whien you opened the can
4-5 C. Crispix

Melt the butter and mix all the seasonings with it to your taste. Spread out on a cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees for an hour. Stir occasionally... I usually stir the first time at 30 minutes and then every 15 minutes after that until it's as crunchy as I want it.
