Christmas Treats Day 25: Chex Mix

Merry Christmas everyone!!  I figured I would end the collection of Christmas recipes with Chex Mix.  My family makes a variation of the classic original.

4 1/2 cups Corn Chex cereal
4 1/2 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 cup mixed nuts, cashews, or peanuts
1 cup (or large handful) pretzel sticks
1 stick butter
1-2 pouches Chex Mix seasoning OR 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 1/2 tsp seasoned salt, 3/4 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp onion powder

Line a large area with newspaper or brown paper bags topped with paper towels.  Melt butter in microwave; stir in seasonings.  Meanwhile, mix together cereal, nuts, and pretzels.  Stir sauce once more before pouring over cereal mixture.  Stir together and microwave for 2 minutes; mix well and microwave an additional 3 minutes.  Stir once more and microwave for a final 2 minutes.  Shake out onto prepared area lined with paper towels to dry.  Once Chex Mix has cooled, sprinkle with M&Ms and store in an airtight container.
