It's a Family Tradition

It's a little after 11pm, I'm sleepy and wanting to go to bed. But I can't because I have to wait for our "Hot Stuff" to finish cooking. Hot Stuff is the name the Hurt family gave our recipe for Chex mix. We made it every Christmas when I was growing up, and it's a tradition that is carried on in our home now. We've added to the tradition...every year we make our Hot Stuff while watching Sound of Music. Yes, all three hours every year.

So if you want to know why we call it "Hot Stuff", here's our Chex mix recipe:
  • 1 box Cheerios
  • 1 box Wheat Chex
  • 1 box Corn Chex
  • 1 box Rice Checks
  • 1 Can Spanish Peanuts
  • 1 Can Mixed Nuts
  • 1 pkg. pretzels
  • 1/4 lb. butter
  • 1/4 c. Wishteshire sauce
  • 1 T. celery salt
  • 1 T. onion salt
  • 1 T. cayenne pepper
Melt butter. Add remaining ingredients. Mix over cereal. Bake 1 hr. at 250 stirring every 20 minutes.
