Chex Mix

My very absolutely positively favorite Christmas treat is Chex Mix. I only allow myself to make it between Thanksgiving and Abby's Birthday in January, both to preserve its specialness and my health. My recipe:

3 cups rice chex (generic!)
3 cups corn chex (")
(or 6 cups crispix, but it's more expensive)
3 cups wheat chex (alas, no generic)
1 handful stick pretzels
1 cup cashews

Mix together in a big roaster.

4 T Lea and Perrins Worcestershire (it's worth it)
1 stick margarine
1 tsp Lawrys Seasoning Salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt

Microwave together to melt the butter and stir to combine.

Pour over mixed cereal, stirring to coat.

Bake at 250 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Spread on paper towels to cool.

Chex Mix at your house has become one of MY Christmas traditions. I love that whenever I come to your house during the holidays, there will be Chex Mix in the red tin!

I made my first batch here yesterday. The bowl is awesome but much harder to clean than the roaster. Any hints?
