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.
