Grandma's Chex Mix

This really is MY Grandma's recipe. It's at least 40 years old! I like it the best of all the many varieties of this recipe that are out there.

1 1/2 gallons of Chex or Crispex of your choice
1-2 c. pretzel sticks, broken
about 1 pound nuts of your choice (I like cashews, almonds and pecans)
Mix the above in a large bowl. Set aside.

In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, mix:
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 c. oil
1 1/2 t. garlic salt
1 1/2 t. seasoned salt

Shake well. Pour over Chex mixture. Stir to coat. Pour into 2 or 3, 13 x 9" pans. Bake in a preheated 250 oven for 1-1/2 hours, stirring every half hour. Transfer from pans to paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.

This makes a great gift for Christmas. Simply package in jars or cellophane bags, tied with ribbon or raffia.
