Have you tried this? I make sort of traditional Chex Mix with rice, corn, and wheat chex, pretzels, mixed nuts and bagel chips, plus the worchestershire and garlic salt. Seems like a lot of oil there....does it make the cereal all soggy?

Terri-
No, I can't say that I've ever tried this particular recipe. We always used the one from the side of the Chex cereal box. I think the oil probably keeps the mixture from scorching in the oven and makes it crisp. The original Chex Party Mix recipe calls for butter instead of oil. Either way, I don't think it would make it soggy, esp. if you keep stirring it every 2 minutes.

And speaking of Party Mix, you know what my favorite part was, but it's the one ingredient that seems to have slowly disappeared over the years: sesame sticks. I still put it in my recipe. :)

Sesame sticks are really good. I always make mine with the chex, pretzels, nuts and cheerios.
