This homemade seasoned Chex mix can be made with your choice of seasonings or use you favorite blend like I did! Add in some biscuit croutons and pecans and you have a readl Southern Chex mix!
6 cups cubed leftover biscuits, croutons, challah or other bread
3 c Chex cereal
2 c bite-sized pretzels
1 c coarsely chopped pecans or halve them
1/2 c white sesame seeds
12 T or 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1/4 c Worcestershire sauce
2 t honey
1 T fine sea salt
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
1 t cayenne pepper
OR in place of the seasonings above use 1 T of your favorite seasoning mixture such as Nashville Hot Chicken Seasoning
Place racks in the middle and lower third of the oven and preheat to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Divide the cubed biscuits between the two baking sheets and bake for 8 – 12 minutes turning halfway through and toasting until golden brown. Remove and let cool to room temperature.
REDUCE oven temperature to 250.
In a large bowl combine the biscuit cubes, Chex cereal, pretzels, pecans and sesame seeds and stir gently to mix.
In a small saucepan or large microwaveable measuring cup combine the butter, Worcestershire, honey and your choice of seasonings. Make sure to use 1 T of your favorite combination and mayber even more! Cook until the butter melts, stirring occasionally to blend.
Pour the butter mixture over the party snack and stir until everything is evenly combined.
Divid between the parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 60 minutes, stirring mixture every 15 minutes.
Remove from oven. Let cool and store in an airtight container until ready to eat!
