Homemade Chex Mix is easy to make, so you don’t have to buy the prepackaged stuff. In fact, this original Chex Mix recipe for the oven is a favorite in my household. For me the original Chex Mix recipe is the best Chex mix recipe.
When I was growing up, my Mom would make this Chex mix recipe in the oven 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.
