Chex Mix

This is the OLD Chex Mix recipe that used to be on the side of the Chex box. They have since changed it, and it's not as good. Also tastes much better than the store bought Chex Mix. We always took this on family car trips growing up and we still have this at the family Campout every year. I think my mom sends it with all of the kids when they have to travel for sporting events.

Use a big bowl (sorry I'm unclear on the size) and fill with equal parts Cheerios, Crispix, Rice Chex, Corn Chex, and Wheat Chex.


1 square margarine
3 Tbl. worchestershire sauce
2 1/2 tsp. seasoning salt

Pour evenly over cereal, stirring to coat evenly. Microwave for 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.

Peanut Butter Chews

Can't believe I haven't put this recipe on here yet. These are my husband's (and now my children's) favorite.

1 c. powdered milk
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. corn syrup
2/3 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. milk chocolate chips

Mix well until uniform consistency, adding chocolate chips only when other ingredients are mixed well. Roll into small 1/2" to 1" balls and chill. Or roll into a long tube like a snake inside of plastic wrap, chill, and cut into pieces.

If you are using the very fine powdered milk from the cannery, only use 1/2 c. powdered milk.

Note: All of these ingredients are things you could keep in your food storage so I have these as an easy treat or comfort food that you could make without baking or refrigerating in an emergency. I know if there was an emergency and we were living off our food storage for whatever reason, these would cheer my family up for sure.


1 stick of butter or margarine, softened
3 c. powdered sugar
1 egg

Mix together with electric mixer. May add water in small amounts (drops) to thin if needed. Add food coloring as desired.

(This is the same recipe as the chocolate frosting without the cocoa.)

Emeril's Belgian Waffles

This recipe is from Emeril on the Food Network. BAM.

Bowl 1: Sift
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Bowl 2:

4 egg yolks
2 Tbl. sugar

Beat until sugar dissolves and eggs turn a pale yellow color. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 4 Tbl. butter, 2 c. milk.

Bowl 3:

Beat 4 egg whites about 1 minute until peaks form.

Combine Bowl 1 and 2, fold in egg whites. Do not overmix. coat waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Use 3/4 c. batter each time (at least this amount is perfect for my waffle iron). Makes 8 round Belgian waffles.
