This Chex Mix recipe has been passed down through the generations. I don’t know where it originally came from, but my grandmother, mother and I have all made it throughout the years. It makes tons so it’s perfect for parties. I even make a batch to take camping and keep the leftovers in the freezer for movie nights.

I tried making Chex Mix in my 18 quart roaster because I didn’t have a pan big enough to hold all the ingredients, but condensation settled on the lid of the roaster and dripped back into the mix. I was afraid it would get soggy, so I finished it in the oven using the pan from the roaster.

Ingredients
  1. 1 lb Spanish peanuts
  2. 1 lb cashews
  3. 12 oz box Rice Chex
  4. 12 oz box Corn Chex
  5. 12 oz box Kix
  6. 12 oz box Cheerios
  7. 1 lb bag straight pretzels, broken or mini pretzels
  8. 1 lb butter
  9. 3 cups salad oil (I used olive oil)
  10. 4 teaspoons celery salt
  11. 4 teaspoons savory leaf
  12. 4 teaspoons season-all salt
  13. 4 teaspoons garlic powder
  14. 2 teaspoons onion powder
  15. 3 teaspoons chili powder
  16. 2 teaspoons Worcestershire
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250°
  2. Mix peanuts, cashews, Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Kix, Cheerios and pretzels in 15+ quart pan.
  3. Melt butter in medium size bowl. Add salad oil, spices and Worcestershire.
  4. Keep spice mixture well stirred. Spices settle quickly.
  5. Pour spice mixture over cereal and stir gently.
  6. Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes. Stir every 20 minutes.
Notes
  1. Don’t like nuts? Try adding Cheese-Its, Goldfish or other favorite snacks instead. The version in the pictures has Cheese-Its and no nuts.
  2. Play with adding different ingredients to change it up!
  3. Sesame Sticks also make a great addition.
  4. Broken Melba Toast is good, too.
  5. I left the measurements in teaspoons so it’s easier to cut the recipe in half.

  1. We’ll have to discuss this at length. I make mine in my Nesco 18qt roaster and it turns out perfect every time. ~hugs~
