Chex Mix Recipe

This is the best recipe for Chex Mix ever!  I am sharing my Moms secret recipe!

Our families FAVORITE snack food during the holidays is Chex Mix.  This is not the recipe on the box but the one that Mom has perfected throughout the years.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.  No Christmas is complete without it!

It can be made gluten free by eliminating the Wheat Chex and Cheerios and substituting Gluten Free Pretzels.  We like it almost as much 😉

    Yummy! I am a little late getting around to it but, this is one of my favorite holiday treats too. I had to make mine gluten free this year for one my children…so it only had Corn Chex, Rice Chex and nuts….plus all the seasoning. But, it was still awesome.

    Chex Mix has been a family tradition for many years here, too. I’m gonna try your recipe! It doesn’t require so much Wheat Chex, which comes in smaller boxes than the Rice or Corn Chex. Have you ever made this in the microwave rather than the oven?

    Great recipe to use up quite a few boxes of Chex that I just purchased super cheap with coupons and sales 😉 Thank you!

    I was so excited to see this, because there is little I love around the holidays more than Chex mix. The funny thing is that I am never satisfied with the recipe on the box. I love homemade recipes that friends have shared with me, and I love to try them all. I can’t wait to give your mom’s version a try! Thank you!

    I’ll have to try this during Christmas! My family loves Chex Mix and I agree this recipe looks much more flavorful! What a great idea for super Bowl Sunday too!! Thank you! :)

    You use a lot more butter than I do but I use more worcestershire suace and seasonings. I’ll make about 15 double batches in the next 5 days.
