In honor of Fall, I thought I’d share my recipe for TV trash.  I have to make this every November.  My son and husband demand it, and my brother-in-laws try to come over after it’s made as well.  I believe it’s just the standard Chex mix recipe with a twist.  I got it from my neighbor who I’ve know since I was a teen(we bought my husband’s parent’s house.).  Enjoy!

T.V. Trash


3 sticks of butter

3/4 cup Worchestershire Sauce

3Tbsp. + 1 1/2 tsp. Tony Chachere’s original creole seasoning

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 Tbsp. + 1 1/2 tsp. red pepper

1 box Corn Chex

1 box Wheat Chex

1 box Rice Chex

1 box Cheerios

2 bags of pretzels  (I use the the honey wheat sticks)

2  14 oz. containers of mixed nuts (I always add a bag of pecans as well, because there is never enough😉)


Melt butter in pot.  Add in seasonings and Worchestershire sauce.  Divide cereals, nuts and pretzels into 2 large roasting pans. Once sauce is melted and combined, pour equal amounts into roasting pans on top of cereal mixes and stir.  Bake for 1 hour at 250 degrees stirring the mix every 15 minutes.
