Party Time! Wheat-Free Snack Mix

OK, I know I've been gone a while. I lost three weeks including two Thanksgivings and am still playing "catch up". This one is for that Christmas through New Year's into Elvis' Birthday party party season.

Made as directed, this will be wheat-free, but not totally gluten-free. Crispix contains a bit of barley malt, so use at your own tolerance level. There are lots of store-brand cereals out there similar to Chex rice and corn cereals, so read ingredients and find a combination that works for you.

Snack Mix (Sort-of Chex Mix)
8 cups Crispix cereal
1 cup wheat-free Ener-G pretzels
1 cup peanuts (I use dry-roasted)
1/4 butter
1 1/4 teaspoons seasoned salt (like Lowery's or McCormick)
4 1/2 teaspoons Heinz Worcestershire sauce

Combine cereal, pretzels, and peanuts in a large zip-lock bag; set aside. Put butter in microwave safe cup, cover and melt (about 40 seconds on high). Add seasoned salt and Worcestershire sauce to melted butter and stir. Pour over cereal mix and seal bag. Shake vigorously to mix all thoroughly. Empty into microwave safe baking pan approximately 9" x 13". Microwave on high 5-6 minutes, stirring every two minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.
