Whoop! Whoop! It’s Fall and officially football season. Therefore, you MUST make this Homemade Chex Party Mix to serve at your next football party. Rice Chex, Corn Chex, sourdough pretzel bites, cracker pieces, topped with butter, spices and Worcestershire sauce, and then baked in the oven. This recipe beats store bought Chex Mix any day!
Yeah I’ll be honest. I don’t watch football. But if I did, I would definitely want to eat this while watching it! And the real reason I made this was because I had an over flowing pantry of ingredients perfect for Chex Party Mix. I have been soooooooo sick the past few weeks, so I have been living on a diet of bland food. Which means I have a pantry full of Rice Chex, Corn Chex and sourdough pretzels. I couldn’t eat all that by myself, so I figured I would make a Chex Party Mix! Chex Party Mix is the savory counterpart to the sweet Muddy Buddies. I recommend making both 😉
Homemade Chex Party MixPrint Recipe
- 5 cups Corn Chex
- 4 cups Rice Chex
- 2 cups small pretzels (I used Hanover's Sourdough Pretzel Bites)
- 1 cup cracker pieces (I used Milton's Everything Crackers)
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder (NOT GARLIC SALT)
- 2 tablespoons seasoned salt
Preheat oven to 250-degrees. Line a large, rimmed baking pan with foil and spray with baking spray (I used a 17.25-inch x 11.5-inch x 1-inch pan). Add the Corn Chex, Rice Chex, pretzels and cracker pieces to the prepared baking pan. Stir the dry ingredients to mix them up.
In a small microwave safe bowl, add the butter and melt the butter. Remove the bowl from the microwave and whisk in the Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, garlic powder and seasoned salt. Whisk until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
Slowly pour the butter mixture over the Chex mix on the baking pan, evenly distributing the butter mixture over the Chex mix. Use clean hands to gently stir and toss the Chex mix, combining the butter mixture throughout the Chex mix, ensuring the Chex mix is evenly moistened.
Bake Chex Mix in 250-degree oven for 60-minutes, stirring the mixture every 15-minutes. At the last 15-minutes of baking time, increase the oven temperature to 325-degrees.
Let Chex Mix cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Chex Mix will stay fresh for up to two weeks when stored properly, at room temperature.
Oh. And make sure you use garlic powder and not garlic salt. I used garlic salt the first time around, and it was sooooo salty. Whoops! But garlic powder makes it perfect 🙂 So what’s your favorite snack to munch on during football games?
