Tasty Tuesday Crockpot Chex Mix & Recipe Link Up

Hi friends and welcome to another Tasty Tuesday!!  Thanks for stopping by!

One of my families favorite Thanksgiving tradition is the annual Thanksgiving puzzle and snacks.  It began as a way to keep the kiddos distracted and out of the kitchen, but now that we're all grown we still continue it.  While the meal is being finished up we all gather in the living room and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and do a Thanksgiving puzzle together.  Not just any puzzle.  A very specific one of a family gathering around a Thanksgiving feast.  One year we decided to spice things up and do a different puzzle.
It was awful.  
We vowed to never do that again and stick to the traditional, annual Thanksgiving puzzle.
While we puzzle and laugh and talk we also snack.  Since my mother does the extraordinary Thanksgiving feast, I take care of some appetizer/snacks.  Chex mix is an absolute must for the pre-Thanksgiving feast snack.  I wanted a way to avoid taking up more oven space though, so I found a way to use my trusty beloved crock pot.  If you're looking for one more delicious appetizer or snack to take to your Thanksgiving gathering, try this one!!!

Here's what you'll need..
(This is a non-traditional set of ingredients here I realize, but this is our favorite.  Use these suggested ideas or your family's favorites!!)
-9 cups Chex cereal (most suggest equal parts corn, rice, and wheat, but we don't like wheat chex)
-2 cups pretzels
-3 cups goldfish (in replacement of nuts due to a family member's nut allergy)
-6 Tablespoons melted butter
-1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
-1 Tablespoon seasoned salt
-1 teaspoon garlic powder 

Begin by combining the cereals, pretzels, and goldfish in the crockpot.

In a separate bowl combine melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt and garlic powder.

Pour over the cereal mixture in the crockpot and stir to combine.

Turn this on low for 3 hours, stirring about every 45 minutes-1 hour so the bottom doesn't burn.  After the 3 hours pour the chex mix out on parchment paper to let it cool completely. 

Once it's all cool eat it up, store it, or package it in cute jars with ribbon for a fun gift!!
