The BEST Chex Mix You Will Ever Eat

The Best Chex Mix

Who doesn’t love Chex Mix? Can we all admit that at one point in our lives, we have easily eaten close to an entire batch of Chex Mix in one sitting? I’m raising my hand. My mom has always made Chex Mix around the holidays and her recipe is hands down the BEST Chex Mix in the world! I promise I’m not biased. People tell her all the time. I understand if you are questioning this since I am her daughter, so I would recommend you just try it for yourself!

The Best Chex Mix

While my mom doesn’t have one specific special ingredient that puts this over the top, she keeps the recipe super simple and in this case, less is more! Instead of adding some of the traditional Chex Mix ingredients like pretzels and bagel chips, she sticks to the Chex cereal, peanuts, and seasoning. There is something about the simplicity of ingredients that just really makes everything blend beautifully! Here is what you will need! 

Chex Mix Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups of Whole Wheat Chex Cereal
  • 3 Cups of Corn Chex Cereal
  • 3 Cups of Rice Chex Cereal
  • 2 Cups of Peanuts
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 5 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce — and a little more 
  • 1 Tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp. Onion Powder
  • 2 Tsp. Lawry’s Seasoning

Let’s Get Cooking!

Heat the oven to 225°F.

Add the cereal and peanuts to a large bowl.

Chex Mix Ingredients

Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and add the Worcestershire sauce, Lawry’s, seasoning garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir.

Add the seasoning mixture to the cereal and stir well.

Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Pour the Chex Mix onto the baking pan. I really love Worcestershire sauce, so I like to drizzle a little bit more on top of the mixture before I pop it into the over. My mom always does this and I think it really puts it over the top! 

Chex Mix Recipe

Bake the Chex Mix for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Some recipes call for the microwave, but baking it really helps seal the flavors into each piece of cereal and it is so crispy and delicious!

  1. Finally found the Chex Mix recipe that my Mom made as well! All the other recipes have the bagel chips and pretzels- but this is truly the best way!
    I made this on my own for the first time last week- brought back great memories and I know my daughter will keep this recipe going in our family!
    Thanks for sharing!
