I usually just make up a mix of whatever cereal and crackers I need to use up, add a cup of nuts, and a cup of potato sticks. I most often use Corn, Rice, and Wheat Chex, Kix, Cheerios and small wheat, cheese or oyster crackers. It doesn’t make much difference what the proportions are as along as the total makes around 9-10 cups including the nuts and potato sticks. Small pretzels can certainly be added. I am not a fan of pretzels so don’t use them.
For this particular mix, I looked in my refrigerator to see what I might have on hand that I could use to flavor the mix and spied a bottle of Soy Vay Honey Garlic Sauce. Since the original Chex Mix recipe uses Worcestershire sauce, I figured that it would be OK to use some other type of sauce. I'm sure that Kikkoman's Teriyaki Baste and Glaze would work also and plan to try that one soon.
Honey Garlic Snack Mix
7-8 c. assorted cereals such as Chex, Kix, Cheerios and small crackers
1 c. any nuts
1 c. potato sticks or small pretzels
1/4 c butter melted
1/4 c. Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic Sauce
1/3 c. Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic Sauce
Combine cereals, crackers, nuts and potato sticks or pretzels together in a very large bowl. Combine the melted butter and the 1/4 c. Hoisin Garlic Sauce. Pour over the cereal/cracker mixture and mix to blend well. Pour out into a large roaster pan. Bake at 275 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. After 45 minutes pour the 1/3 c. Hoisin Garlic Sauce over the cereal/cracker mixture and mix well. Bake another 15 to 20 minutes until the cereal and crackers are lightly glazed. Makes about 9 to 10 cups mix.
