Even your husband can make this road trip snack

Today I am letting you guys into our kitchen. This is a little recipe that is very close to our hearts and stomachs. Taylor grew up making this recipe with his mom. I got introduced to it once we started dating but was not allowed the recipe until we were married! So today I am sharing this simple but delicious recipe for Road Trip Chex Mix.

PSA: This snack is by no means healthy!! We make this chex mix on special occasions and holidays where we know we are celebrating/vacationing and there is no thought of eating healthy involved.

 Dry Ingredients:
 1- Family Size box of Krispex Cereal
1- Regular box of Cheerios
1- Regular Box of Original Cheezits
1- Regular bag of pretzels

I feel like these two are the "secret ingredients"
"Wet" Ingredients
2- Sticks of butter
1 1/2 cup - Worstershire
1 tablespoon- Garlic salt
1/2 tablespoon- Onion salt
2 tablespoons- Brown sugar
1 teaspoon- cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon - Lemon juice

Preheat oven to *250. Combine all the dry ingredients in a very large cooking pan. We usually buy a heavy duty aluminum foil roasting pan. When I say all the ingredients I really mean eyeball it to your liking. We do the whole box of chex mix, half a box of cheerios, half to all of the cheezits, then about 1/4 of the pretzels. It's just whatever you want to most or least of.

Then in a microwavable bowl melt the butter. Once melted whisk together all the rest of the ingredients. We definitely taste the wet ingredients often to get the exact amount of sweet to salty to spicy that we want. I suggest you taste as you go and adjust accordingly.

Husband approved!

Once the wet ingredients are mixed and to your liking, pour it over the dry ingredients and mix with spoon... or your hands.

Place it in the oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, stir the chex mix around and place in oven again for 20 more minutes.
