Chex Mix

My go to party snack

Original Recipe

I find that too often Chex Mix includes a lot of things that no one really cares for. Instead, I skip all that and get right to the good stuff.

Butter (melted)1 cup228%
Worcestershire sauce4 tbsp56%
Seasoned salt1.5 tbs22%
Garlic powder3 tsp10%
Onion powder2 tsp7%
Chex cereal (corn or rice)290%
Pretzels3 cups150%



Heat the oven to 250°F. Arrange 2 racks to divide the oven into thirds and heat the oven to 250°F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.


Make the seasoning mixture. Place the butter in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 10-second intervals, stirring between each, until fully melted, 50 to 60 seconds total. (Alternatively, melt in a small saucepan on the stovetop over low heat.) Add the remaining wet ingredients and spaces, whisk well to combine.


Combine the Chex cereal and pretzels, tossing lightly.


Toss with butter. Pour half the butter mixture over the cereal mixture and toss gently with your hands to coat. Pour the remaining butter mixture toss again.


Bake until lightly brown and crispy. Transfer the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets and spread into an even layer. Bake, stirring every 30 minutes, until lightly browned and crisp, 50 to 60 minutes total.
