Judy’s Chex Mix

I got this recipe from a neighbor and good friend of 20plus years and my girls have grown up loving it….and Judy.  It’s a staple any party we have, as well as something I always make around the holidays to have to snack on and give in decorative bags as a little gift.
1/2 box rice chex
1/2 box corn chex
1/2 box cheerios
1/2 small bag stick pretzels
1 lb peanuts, pecans, OR cashews
2 ½ sticks butter
½ cup bacon drippings
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons garlic salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Melt butter with the bacon drippings in a medium sized saucepan;  add Tabasco sauce, peanut butter and garlic salt and stir to mix well. 
In a very large bowl,  combine all cereals, pretzels, and nuts, then drizzle butter mixture over and stir gently to coat.  Pour into a large roasting pan and bake in oven for 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool before serving.
