  1. Fry up the bacon until it’s nice and crisp. Note: for those who’ve asked, 1 pound of bacon (in my experience) will yield between 1/3 to 1/2 cup of drippings. It depends on the bacon you use.
  2. Then place the cooked bacon in a container and reserve it for another use- it’s the leftover drippings you’re after!
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  4. Melt the butter and bacon drippings together in a saucepan, then stir in the seasonings to make a nice, buttery mix.
  5. In a very large bowl, combine the mix ingredients.
  6. Gradually stir in the buttery seasoning mix until the dry mix is evenly coated.
  7. Spread on cookie sheets and bake for 1 hour, turning every 15 minutes.
  8. Spread on paper towels to cool.
  9. Store in airtight container.
  10. Makes about 14 cups Chex mix snack.
