How to Make Julia's Extra Special Holiday Chex Mix


  1. Fry bacon until it's nice and crisp. 1 lb. of bacon will yield between 1/3 to 1/2 c of drippings. It depends on the bacon you use.
  2. Place cooked bacon in a container and reserve it for another use. It's the leftover drippings you're after.
  3. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  4. Melt the butter and bacon drippings together in a saucepan, then stir in the seasonings to make a nice, buttery mix.
  5. In a large bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients and gradually stir in the buttery seasoning mix until the dry ingredients are evenly coated.
  6. Spread on a cookie sheet and bake for 1 hr, turning every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towel to cool.
