Chex Party Mix
Who else is totally addicted to homemade chex mix? I remember the first time that I tried it – I was at a party when I was a teenager. I grabbed a handful out of curiosity, and then was totally shocked by how delicious it was. Where had this savory, crunchy, addictively delicious snack been all my life?
Since then, I’ve tried a lot of chex mix recipes, but I keep coming back to this classic chex mix recipe as my favorite. It’s simple, delicious, and could not be easier to make. It’s one of my very favorite snacks!
How to Make Homemade Chex Mix
The original chex mix recipe required baking it in the oven and stirring it at intervals, but this new (and much easier) microwave recipe means that you can have homemade chex mix in about 15 minutes! It’s so simple and quick – just mix your Chex cereal and your add ins (we like to add pretzels, mixed nuts, and Cheez-It crackers), then add your seasonings and microwave to crisp perfection!
It’s a good idea to let the chex mix cool before serving, because it does get pretty hot while it’s cooking. Be sure to watch it carefully, and stir every minute, to prevent burning. This chex party mix is a simple and quick snack that’s perfect to enjoy any time!
