Blue Willow Cookbook Chex Mix Recipe? Sun, 12/20/09 5:06 PM (permalink)
Does anyone have the recipe for Chex mix that appears in the Stern's Blue Willow cookbook? 
I lent my Blue Willow cookbook to my sister before Thanksgiving and now she can't find it. 
I'm all ready to make my favorite Chex mix and no recipe! 
PS.  If you do have the recipe and want to make it, there's a typo in the instructions.  It says to bake at 350 degrees for an hour stirring every 15 minutes.  I tried that the first year and burnt it.  It should read 250 degrees.

    Preheat oven to  350  F.  Heat   oleo  in large shallow roasting pan.  Remove pan from oven and stir in  the  worcestershire sauce  and  salt.  Add  cereal and nuts  and mix  until well coated.  Return to oven and cook  about  1 hour,  stirring every  15 minutes.  Spread on a paper towel and cool.

      Personally here is what I use:
      I have done this about six times in the past two weeks.
      7 cups of corn chex
      1  stick of melted butter
      4 teaspoons of worchershire sauce
      1 teaspoon of salt
      1 teaspoon of garlic powder
      1 teaspoon of onion powder  
      1 cup of pecans
      1 cup of cashews
      I melt the butter in a container with the salt, worchesershire sauce, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and add it to the container of corn chex, pecans and cashews.  I stir it in for a while till everything in the container is coated.
      If you want to kick it up a notch, I use a couple of dashes of Cholula sauce or your favorite hot sauce.  I occasionally over do it.
      I bake for 60 minutes at 350F and I turn every 15 minutes.  I let it set on a paper napkin and let it cool.
      I enjoy with a cocktail.  It sounds sorta complicated but it ain't.
      Happy holidays
