  • 7 tablespoons bacon grease
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
  • 5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons garlic salt
  • 4 cups Rice Chex
  • 5 cups Corn Chex
  • 5 cups Cheerios
  • 2 cups Wheat Chex
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 2 cups Spanish nuts


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Place bacon grease, butter, and Worcestershire in a large roasting pan. Heat in the oven until the butter is melted, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Slowly add garlic salt and mix until completely dissolved.
  • Combine the cereal, pretzels and nuts in a large mixing bowl.
  • Gradually pour 1/3 of the cereal mixture into the roasting pan with the melted butter and bacon grease. Stir the cereal to coat. Repeat, adding 1/3 at a time, with the remaining cereal mixture.
  • Roast the Chex mix for 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.


Allow the homemade Chex Mix to cool completely before storing it in an airtight container. Store in a cool, dry place. Homemade Chex Mix should last for two weeks if stored properly.
