Chesapeake Bay Bar Mix

Circle B Kitchen

Recipe Adapted from Everyday Food magazine

Makes 12 Cups

6 cups crisp corn, rice cereal, such as Crispix or Chex (I used Corn and Wheat Chex)

3 cups thin pretzel sticks

3 cups oyster crackers

2 cups roasted, salted peanuts

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons hot-pepper sauce, such as Tabasco (or more if you like it spicy)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a roasting pan, combine cereal, pretzels, crackers, and peanuts. In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay, lemon juice, and hot-pepper sauce. Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture and stir until ingredients are completely coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Transfer mixture to two rimmed baking sheets to cool completely.
