Classic Chex Mix

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 on 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.

    I add Seasoned Salt and Tabasco to mine as well as Bacon grease and Cheerios. One large box of all the cereals, one lb of stick Pretezels, one lb of cashews and pecans each toasted before adding to the mix. Makes about 5 one gallon bags of munching.

    I have never been a fan of the corn Chex. I use the rice version – if that suits your taste. Alternate adding cereals to the mix helps, a cup of wheat Chex first. They take longer to coat. Also, I will add a cup of regular Cheerios to the mix, increasing the butter a tbsp. or two to make sure all are coated. For the pretzels, I find that the waffle pretzels are a nice alternative. I have made this for several holiday seasons and it always is a winner. Just wanted to put in my two cents. Thank you for the post!

      I appreciate your suggestions! I love the wheat chex the most, sometimes I double up on those, and I am not a big fan of nuts in my chex mix. One thing is certain, I like this version so much better than the stuff in the bag!
