Heirloom Twist: Teriyaki Chex Mix

As prepared by Michelle P,

We challenged Tablespoon bloggers to choose a classic recipe from the "Heirloom Recipes and New Twist" section of the brand new Betty Crocker Cookbook and throw down their own spin to share with you.


Today's twist: Michellep.'s Teriyaki Chex Mix, a version of Betty's classic Original Chex Party Mix.


betty crocker red cookbook chex party mix twist

So, the Betty Crocker Red Book was re-released on September 19th!  It’s so exciting – such an iconic volume . It’s the first cookbook that I can remember reading as a kid.  In fact, I perused every page, every kind of recipe from every-day to the completely exotic and fabulous.  The Red Book was a huge factor in my interest in food and cooking growing up.  But here’s a fun feature new to this addition.  It has all the classics, as well as a modern twist on these recipes.  So, take for example everyone’s favorite party snack, Chex Mix.  (And I do take salty, savory, crunchy Chex Mix at any given opportunity . . . )  The classic recipe with the seasoned salt is included.  The twist, however, is a Moroccan Chex Mix, with dried fruit as well as yummy exotic spices.  Pretty fab, right?

Well, having to give the recipe a spin myself, I took inspiration from one of my favorite flavors - tangy, mildly sweet teriyaki sauce.  The mix is dressed up with pretty rice crackers, nuts and a few wasabi peas for a little heat.  (Feel free to get creative with your own favorite combo of rice crackers and nuts!)

This version is just as simple to make as the original.  First, melt the butter in the roaster pan in a warm oven.

Stir in the seasonings, and fold in the cereal and the nuts (hold back the rice crackers and wasabi peas until the end).
