Autumn Friendship Gifts

I decided to make mother-in-law's tried-and-true party mix to give as "Autumn Friendship Gifts." It's a very simple recipe...Lord have mercy, I kept the oven going all day on Sunday making tons of this stuff to have at home for snacking, to give to friends who visit, to take as hostess gifts, and just as "Friendship Gifts."

Put all the dry ingredients in the pan, pour over some butter and Worcestershire sauce, and sprinkle with garlic salt...husband LOVES this y'all!I used little cello bags and tied them up with a festive "Happy Fall Y'all" ribbon. You can buy the ribbon from The Suburban Princess here.
Recipe for Mary Gibson's Party Mix:
2 cups corn chex
2 cups wheat chex
2 cups rice chex
1 1/2 cup nuts
2 cups pretzels
1/3 cup melted butter
2 tblsp Worcestershire sauce
Garlic salt to taste

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Mix dry ingredients, blend the melted butter and Worcestershire sauce, and pour over mixture. Stir all in a 13 x 9 x 2 pan. Add garlic salt and mix well. Bake one hour and stir every 15 minutes.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week y'all!
