Crunchy Crispy Chex Mix

Fall consists of several key components; football, holidays, and food, but there is one thing that brings them all together; chex mix.  Not that bagged stuff that is okay, but not really fresh or that good, I mean the original-  homemade-  can’t- stop eating- chex mix.  It’s so good for sunday night football, munchies before Thanksgiving, or just a delicious snack.  It’s really easy, and really worth the time.


  • chex cereal ( corn and rice)
  • unsalted peanuts
  • pretzel sticks
  • frito chips
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • seasoning salt
  • butter or margarine

How to:

  1. preheat oven to 275 degrees
  2. in a microwave safe bowl melt 1 stick of butter or margarine
  3. in a large roasting pan( make sure its large!) pour in melted butter and about 2 to 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and 2 tablespoons of seasoning salt. stir together
  4. add 4 cups of each type of chex cereal ( you can do 2 cups of each for less chex mix, just reduce all the other measurements as well)
  5. with a spatula gently mix cereal in pan, coating all the cereal with the mixture
  6. then add 2 cups of pretzels and fritos ( you can add more or less if you like one more than the other)
  7. and 1 cup of peanuts (optional)
  8. mix gently to coat and mix all the ingredients
  9. put in oven, every 15 minutes stir. cook for 45 minutes
  10. once cooked lay cereal flat onto paper towels.
  11. let cool so the butter can resoak into the cereal and other ingredients
  12. if you don’t eat it right away, store in plastic bags
  13. Enjoy!

I love this recipe and its delicious!

  1. The great thing with chex mix is you can add just about ANYTHING. I use both corn and rice chex, mixed nuts, pretzel sticks, cheez-its and I put triple the amount of Worcestershire sauce that most people do (because it’s really that good). Mmmmm Chex Mix really is good winter snackin’!
