Homemade Chex Mix is easy to make, so you don’t have to buy the prepackaged stuff. In fact, the kind you prepare in the oven tastes better! My Mom always made this at Christmas.
When I was growing up, my Mom would make this Chex Party Mix for the Holidays. If you have never had Chex Party Mix, I think you have been missing out one of the best holiday snack mixes around. Growing up this was one of our Christmas must-have recipes to make. My Mom would make several batches. Some were tucked into boxes of Christmas cookies she would make for everyone, some were left for us t the house.
I hated to eat the nuts. I loved the wheat Chex cereal and the pretzels. When my mother wasn’t looking, I would feed the dog all of the nuts, or I would only pick out everything but the nuts. I think you can get buy with doubling up on the seasoning mix for this snack mix. I love the bits of cereal with lots of flavors. I know you will enjoy it too.
This will stay fresh as long as you store the party snack mix in an air-tight container. I know if you try this recipe you will love this as much as I do.
