Chex Mix

After spending an year living in an american family I discovered some amazingly delicious american snacks! My favorite – Chex Mix for sure! But the ones that my american mom does! But let me tell you, it is addictive!

(microwave method)


¾ stick margarine (6 Tablespoons) / 6 colheres de sopa de manteiga ou margarina

1 1/4 tsp season salt (I use garlic salt, celery salt & Nature’s Seasons) / meia colher de chá de sal de alho, sal de aipo e Nature’s Seasons*

4 1/2 tsp worchestershire sauce / 4 colheres e meia de sopa de molho de worchestershire

2 cups Cheerios / 2 canecas de cereais Cheerios

2 cups Wheat Chex / 2 canecas de Wheat Chex*

2 cups Crispex / 2 canecas de Crispex*

2 cups Toasted Oatmeal Squares (blue box) / 2 canecas de Toasted Oatmeal Squares (caixa azul)*

pretzels / salgadinhos

mixed nuts / mistura de frutos secos (amendoins, castanha do Brasil, avelãs, amêndoas, cajús)

*em Portugal podem ser todas encontrados na American Liberty Store


Melt butter in a large microwave safe bowl.  Add seasonings and stir.  Add cereal and nuts/pretzels.  Cook on high 1 ½ – 2 minutes.  Stir thoroughly to avoid burning at the bottom of the bowl.  Cook on high another 1 ½ – 2 minutes.  Stir thoroughly.  Cook one last time on high for 1 ½ – 2 minutes.  Pour in container and stir or shake. / Derrete-se a manteiga numa tigela grande no microondas. Adiciona-se os sais e o molho worchestershire e mistura-se. Adiciona-se os cereias, os salgadinhos e os frutos secos. Mistura-se. Leva-se ao microondas por cerca de 11/2 – 2 minutos. Mistura-se novamente para evitar que o que fica no fundo da tigela queime. Volta a levar-se ao microondas por 11/2 – 2 minutos. Mistura-se de novo e depois leva-se uma última vez ao microondas pelo mesmo tempo e volta a mexer-se. 



  • Could change out the garlic salt for garlic powder to make it less salty. / Pode substituir-se o sal de alho por pó de alho para tornar a mistura menos salgada.
  • You can use whatever seasons or cereals you want, if you remove any cereal then you will want to increase the others to make a total of 8 cups of cereal. / Pode usar-se quaisquer cereais que gostar ou se quiser retirar algum basta aumentar a quantidade dos outros. (eu normalmente retiro os Wheat Chex e coloco mais Toasted Oatmeal Squares)
  • It has the best flavor after it is cooled after it has set for at least several hours or overnight. / Tem melhor sabor servido frio por isso aconselho deixar arrefecer por várias horas ou deixar a arrefecer durante a noite

And that is it! I could eat a whole thing of this Mix! I just love it!! What’s your favorite Chex Mix recipe? 🙂
