Nuts and Bolts Chex Mix

One of my Dad's favorite Christmas time goodies.

1 box Cheerios
1 box Corn Chex
1 box Rice Chex
1 box Kix
3 lbs. nuts - the more the better
1 bag of thin pretzels

3 sticks of butter
3/4 c. shortening
2 Tbs. garlic salt
1 Tbs. celery salt
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tbs. Tobassco
1/2 Tbs. Cayenne pepper

Mix cereals, nuts, and pretzels.  I use a large trash bag.  Pour mix into pans.

In a sauce pan, melt butter and shortening and add remaining spices.

Pour butter mixture over the cereal mixture and gently mix.

Bake at 250 for 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.

Note: This makes a HUGE batch!  But it also goes very quickly! Be prepared with many pans to bake it in. Also, have several storage containers or gift containers ready for when it's cooled.
