It was nothing but a chex mix party up in my house Thursday night. I had opened a box to try the lemon bar muddybuddies and I knew this was not a cereal that would get eaten in our house. So I made the snickerdoodle and these roasted chex as well. The inspiration came from a snack a babysitter used to make us with cheerios. It’s quite simple and if you are looking for a salty, crunchy, delicious snack, you’re in luck.
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
A few dashes cayenne
2.5 cups rice chex
Melt 2-3 tbsp butter in a pan. Add the seasonings. Stir. Once melted, add the rice chex. Continue to stir until the chex is coated in the butter and gets golden brown and crisp. Store in a ziplock bag for easy snacking. This will last 5-7 days without getting soggy but I don’t think it would last that long in any one’s house because it’s so good!
You could probably do this with chex mix as well, throw in some nuts, pretzels, cheerios, etc. Make it your own and enjoy!
