Makes about 12 cups
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup butter or margerine
1 tablespoon hot sauce (i.e., Red Devil, Tabasco, etc.) (optional - but I recommend it!)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
2 teaspoons seasoning salt (i.e., Lawry's or Penzey's has a nice one!)
2 cups rice Chex cereal
2 cups corn Chex cereal
2 cups wheat Chex cereal
2 cups Cheerios cereal
2 cups pretzel sticks or small pretzels
a small can of mixed nuts or peanuts
1 cup pecans
Preheat oven to 200 F.
Heat first six ingredients to simmering. Put cereal, pretzels and nuts in a large roasting pan. Pour seasoning liquid over ingredients in roasting pan, and mix until well-coated.
Bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
Cool completely and store in air-tight container.
