Chex Mix Recipe

This is my Mom’s homemade Chex Mix Recipe. This is not the recipe on the box but the one that Mom has perfected throughout the years. Our families FAVORITE snack food during the holidays is homemade Chex Mix. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.  No Christmas is complete without it!

Chex Mix

Feel free to double this recipe when you make it because it is that good!  We make several double batches throughout the season for our family to enjoy.  For this recipe you will use Rice Chex, Wheat Chex, Cheerios, Pretzels, Mixed Nuts, Cashews, unsalted butter, celery salt, onion salt, garlic salt and Worcestershire Sauce.

Feel free to adjust the spices to your liking however after years and years of making this for our family my Mom has it perfected.

Bake in a roasting pan at 250 degrees for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Let cool and store in an airtight container.  Trust me this recipe is so delicious you will love to snack on it.   It can be made gluten free by eliminating the Wheat Chex and substituting Gluten Free Pretzels.  We like it almost as much 😉  It can also be made with this Slow Cooker Chex Mix Recipe.

My Mom makes this for Christmas every year and we eat it through New Years.  After that it is time to put the recipe away until the next year.  We all love it so much and eat WAY too much of this yummy snack that we can’t afford to pull the recipe out except once a year.

Well, our waistline can’t afford it, that is. We hope you enjoy my Moms homemade Chex Mix recipe as much as we do.  It is sure to become a family favorite once you give this recipe a try!  It is perfect for game day, any holiday or really any day of the week.

  1. Yummy! I am a little late getting around to it but, this is one of my favorite holiday treats too. I had to make mine gluten free this year for one my children…so it only had Corn Chex, Rice Chex and nuts….plus all the seasoning. But, it was still awesome.

    1. That is awesome that she could still enjoy it! Thanks for sharing how to make it gluten free!

      If you would ever want to share a gluten free recipe as a guest post please contact us.

  2. Chex Mix has been a family tradition for many years here, too. I’m gonna try your recipe! It doesn’t require so much Wheat Chex, which comes in smaller boxes than the Rice or Corn Chex. Have you ever made this in the microwave rather than the oven?

  3. Great recipe to use up quite a few boxes of Chex that I just purchased super cheap with coupons and sales 😉 Thank you!

  4. I was so excited to see this, because there is little I love around the holidays more than Chex mix. The funny thing is that I am never satisfied with the recipe on the box. I love homemade recipes that friends have shared with me, and I love to try them all. I can’t wait to give your mom’s version a try! Thank you!

  5. I’ll have to try this during Christmas! My family loves Chex Mix and I agree this recipe looks much more flavorful! What a great idea for super Bowl Sunday too!! Thank you! 🙂

  6. You use a lot more butter than I do but I use more worcestershire suace and seasonings. I’ll make about 15 double batches in the next 5 days.
