Daddy Chex Mix

As soon as we get done with Thanksgiving, it’s Chex mix time. I think I make a good 8 or 10 batches of this stuff between Thanksgiving and Christmas and it accounts for at least a few pounds of holiday bulk around here. I’ve modified the original recipe slightly.

Time to prep: 10 minutes

Time to done: 1 hour, 30 minutes


  • 3 cups rice Chex
  • 3 cups corn Chex
  • 3 cups wheat Chex
  • 1 cup pretzels
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 cup cheerios or Cheez-its
  • 3/4 stick of butter
  • 2 tbsp. worchestire sauce
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt


Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Melt the butter in a bowl, I use a 1 cup measuring cup. Add all liquids and spices to the butter and whisk until all ingredients are combined.

Add all dry ingredients to a large baking pan with high sides. Stir until all ingredients are mixed well.

Pour the seasoning mixture over the dry ingredients. Mix well using your hands until all dry ingredients are well coated.

Place mix in oven. Stir every 20 minutes for 1 hour, 20 minutes. Once complete, pour the mix onto a flat surface lined with paper towels for cooling.
