Crispix Mix

21 Dec

As long as I can remember, every Christmas our family has enjoyed homemade Crispix Mix. The recipe came from Peggy, my wonderful grandmother figure, who would bring us a huge assortment of treats every December. We have tweaked it over the years, mostly adding more heat, but the flavors and memories have remained the same.

Crispix Mix

  • 36oz Crispix cereal
  • 1/2# pecans
  • 1/2# roasted peanuts
  • 5 oz pretzels
  • 1 and 1/4 cups butter, melted
  • 3 teaspoons Tabasco
  • 4+ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 or more large garlic cloves, halved
  • juice of 2-3 small to medium sized lemons

Pour 1/2 of each of the Crispix, pecans, peanuts, and pretzels into a large turkey roaster (or split between two large foil roasting pans). Combine all other ingredients in a blender and puree. Drizzle 1/2 of liquid over Crispix. Add second 1/2 of the Crispix, pecans, peanuts, and pretzels to the pan(s) and drizzle remaining liquid. Mix gently with hands. Bake 2 hours at 250°,  carefully stirring every 20 minutes. Cool and store in air tight containers. Enjoy!
