Homemade Chex Mix

Once you have all the ingredients, it's easy to make a TON of this snack mix, and it makes for a great gift around the holidays when people get sick of sweets.  Plus you can adjust the seasonings so it is just the way you like it.  This recipe is a little spicy, and very very addicting!

4 cups rice chex cereal
4 cups wheat chex cereal
3 cups unsalted pretzels
2 cups gold fish crackers (I used the "saltine" flavor instead of cheese)
3 cups cheese crackers
2 cups small bagel chips or stick crackers (I found a wheat-thin cracker "straw" that I used, but only because they didn't have bagel chips in stock)
2 cups peanuts (I used half and half of wasabi flavored and spicy crunchy peanuts)
2 T butter, melted
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 T worcestire sauce
1 t chili powder
1 t cumin
1 t coriander
1 t paprika
1/2 t cayenne
1/2 curry powder
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t salt
1/2 t freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Mix together the butter, oil, worcestire, and the remaining list of seasonings.  Whisk to combine well.
Mix the first four ingredients together in a large bowl. Then pour the seasoning mixture in and stir until all of the dry pieces have been coated.

Spread the combination out onto a large rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.  Take the tray out to let the mixture cool.

Meanwhile combine the rest of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. 
When the baked mixture has cooled, combine everything together and mix.  Store in air-tight containers for up to a month.
Merry Christmas!
