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.
