Party Chex Mix

Jump to recipe

Party chex mix is one of my favorite holiday or party snacks and it is just in time for the Super Bowl! Super Bowl parties are perfect for quick grab and go snacks, even if it is just your family this year! Also, my chex mix you will see here is slightly different than other chex mixes. I add a few random things in that others don’t. I would also consider this to be more of a bold mix than a standard mix. Remember you can always adjust the seasoning for your flavor preferences and I will talk about that more later in this post!

Equipment for this recipe:

  • Cookie Sheet
  • Oven
  • Silicone Spatula
  • Parchment Paper
  • Large Bowl

Ingredients for this Recipe:

  • Chex Rice Cereal
  • Chex Corn Cereal
  • Pretzels
  • Cheez-Its
  • Chicken Biscuit Crackers
  • Bagel Chips
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Ground Mustard
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Ranch Dressing Mix Packet
  • Butter

Steps to making the tastiest party mix:

Step 1: Make the seasoning

The seasoning is fairly simple to make, but a few things are super important. Make sure you mix all the powders into the melted butter and make sure they fully dissolve in the butter. First, melt your butter in a microwave. Then, add in the onion powder, garlic powder, ground mustard, worcestershire sauce, and ranch dressing mix. Stir until all the powder is well dissolved. Set the buttery mixture to the side for now.

Step 2: Make the mix

Crush the chicken biscuit crackers and bagel chips into thirds. Then, in a large bowl, mix together the chex rice cereal, chex corn cereal, pretzels, cheez-its, crushed chicken biscuit crackers, and crushed bagel chips.

Step 3: Preheat and Mix

Preheat your oven to 200º. Pour the butter mixture over the cracker mix and and stir with a silicone spatula until the mixture is well mixed. Dump the mixture out on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Step 4: Bake and Cool

Once the oven is preheated, place the cookie sheet in the oven and cook for one hour. Stir the mixture every 15 minutes while it is cooking. To ensure it is done, taste a piece and make sure it is no longer soggy. After they are done cooking, allow the mixture to cool for 20 minutes before serving or putting in a bag.

Substitutions:

This recipe calls for a few crackers outside the normal for a chex party mix. Feel free to swap in or out any cracker you want. Make it your own! You really can’t go wrong!

If you want your mix to be less bold, add only half of the ranch mix packet.
