Chex Mix Dakarois

I really wanted to make Chex snack mix the other day, but as I can’t buy Chex cereal here, I had to get creative. I compiled a modified shopping list from a recipe online, and set off for the store.

While I wouldn’t say that it came out just like Chex snack mix back home, it was pretty darn good. And our American guests seemed to like it too. I made an overflowing 9×13 dish and the eight of us nearly finished it off as we sat around gabbing.

So here’s the recipe!

Chex Mix Dakarois

1 small bag pretzel sticks, broken in half
1 bag frites croustillantes (fried potato sticks)
1 bag soufflés tomates et ail (puffs flavored with tomato and garlic)
1 sleeve biscottes (melba toast) broken into bite-sized pieces
2-3 cups salted peanuts
4 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder (opt)
1/2 tsp Creole seasoning (opt)

Heat oven to 250°F. Pour Melt butter over low heat. Stir in all seasonings. Pour the contents of the bags and the peanuts into a (new!) garbage bag. Pour the butter mixture into the garbage bag. Shake gently until well mixed and coated. Pour into ungreased 13×9-inch pan.

Bake 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool, about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container.

  1. If you like snacks like that…you should definitely try “Accara” and “Pastels”, they are really tasty.
    “Nems” are very good too, they are Vietnamese but they have a big community in Senegal.
