Homemade Chex Mix is a good party or family night snack. This page contains homemade Chex Mix recipes.
This is the original chex mix recipe off the box of General Mills Chex Cereal. This is a great snack mix to put out during the holidays or to even give as gifts!
Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
In our family we have played with this recipe over the years. We have tried using tamari soy sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce, added a few teaspoons of Cayenne pepper or have added Wasabi peas. So have fun and change it up a bit to fit your flavor preference.
Does anyone have recipes for 'party mixes' that uses nuts, fruits, or cereal. My family loves the Chex party mix and would love to try some new ones. THANKS

I like MartyD's sister's idea. Make your own concoction and Never give out the recipe. Let 'em enjoy it and try to figure out what you put in it.
Melt butter butter. Add Worstershire sauce, garlic salt, onion salt, celery salt, mixed nuts, cereal and pretzels. Place in large pan suitable for stirring. Bake at 225 degrees F for 2 hours, stirring often.
Makes about 4 quarts. When grandma put this recipe together, in 1960, it cost her $1.80 to make. I made it in 1980 and it cost $3.28. In 1991, it cost me between $7 and $8.

I'm looking for a Chex mix recipe that has peanut butter and I believe honey on it, but no powdered sugar. My husband is diabetic. I would appreciate your help.

There's nothing like sweet and salty together.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Heat butter in large shallow baking pan in oven until melted. Remove, stir in season salt and Worcestershire sauce. Add Chex and nuts. Mix until all are coated. Heat in oven 45 minutes.
Stir every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on absorbent paper or your M and Ms will melt. After the mix is cooled, add M and M's and stir. Makes around 8 cups.
