Tips & Tricks
- The yummy butter sauce is essential to flavoring the dry mix ingredients, and I recommend splitting it into two batches to help distribute it evenly.
- While the mix is cooling, GTFO of the kitchen or you're going to eat the whole batch before it even makes it into the serving bowl. Speaking from experience here.
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 3 cups Bugles
- 4 cups Wheat Chex
- 2 cups bite-sized pretzels
- 2 cups pecans
- 6 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup candy corn
- 1 cup Reese's pieces
- Mix Chex mix, Bugles, pecans, and pretzels in large bowl and set aside.
- Mix melted butter, Worcestershire, garlic powder, and onion powder. Pour half of the butter over the mixture and mix until evenly dispersed. Repeat with the remaining butter mixture.
- Microwave uncovered for 5 to 6 minutes, stopping every 2 minutes to stir the mixture. Toss with popcorn, then spread on baking sheets to cool.
- Toss in a serving bowl with candy corn and Reese's Pieces.
