Chex Mix

Savory Homemade Chex Mix

Oh, man. I remember going through a lot of bags of Chex Mix with my mom. We loved it. I think she prefered the original flavor. I liked the bold because it had a round one whose texture I really enjoyed.

I’ve never actually made Chex Mix before. This recipe looks delicious though.

The season for lots of guests and enteratining is coming up and QUICK! This means having lots of food and snacks on hand. Why not try this easy peasy Crock-Pot Chex Mix? You will have enough for all those hungry relatives and friends.

Ingredients 

  • 9 cups Chex cereal (I used equal parts corn, rice, and wheat Chex)
  • 2 cups pretzels
  • 1 cup Cheerios
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/3 cup (6 Tablespoons) butter, melted and hot
  • 1 Tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add cereal, pretzels, cheerios and peanuts to the bowl of a slow cooker.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together butter and seasoned salt until the salt is dissolved.  Stir in the Worcestershire sauce until combined.
  3. Drizzle the sauce evenly over the top of the cereal mixture.  Toss for about 1 minute, or until the mixture is evenly combined.
  4. Cover and slow cook on low for 3 hours,  stirring at the 1 hour, 2 hour and 2.5 hour marks so that the mixture does not burn.  Then spread the mixture out onto a few baking sheets or parchment paper in an even layer until it cools to room temperature.  Serve, or store in a sealed container for up to 3 weeks.
  5. *If your slow cooker does not have a tiny hole in it to let air escape, it may collect too much condensation which could make the Chex Mix get too soggy.  If that is the case, I recommend placing a towel underneath the lid of the slow cooker to collect the condensation.
