We had homemade Chex Mix at a Thanksgiving get-together with my DH’s friends. When I asked about the recipe, I got a look of “why don’t you just look on the internet?” I have been looking, but I overwhelmed with the number of different variations. Does anyone have recommendations? TIA!

@coffeegal85: I only know how to make puppy chow using Chex, lol. It’s my go-to “mommy, can you make me this?” snack because only mommy knows how to make it 🙂
I am not much help, but have you tried Chex website? Usually the Chex recipe I always see at holiday parties included a packet of Hidden Valley ranch mix.
Hopefully someone can give you a good recipe 🙂

3 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (use a heaping tsp for more flavor)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder (again I use heaping)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
6 cups Crispix
1 cup mixed nuts
Melt butter, add garlic and onion powder, lemon juice, and Worcestershire and stir. Pour over cereal, nuts, and pretzels that are spread in a 9 x 13 pan. Bake in preheated 250 degree oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Enjoy!!!!

So there is one specific Chex Mix recipe that’s been in use since the 1950s–I’m assuming that’s the one you had!
But here’s a listing of the 25 the company has released. If you can remember what it tasted like, it should be pretty easy to identify!

My mom has been making this one for years! It’s so good. 🙂 sorry I couldn’t link the URL—I’m on my phone. I hope this helps!

I use the original as that’s my favorite! I do it a little differently, I do 4 cups of each cereal and then 2 cups of peanuts. I’m not a fan of the pretzels or bagel chips in them. And then I double the butter/sauce/seasonings.
I do it in the oven because it makes my house smell yummy.
This is the “original.” It’s also on the side of the Chex box FYI
3 cups Corn chex
3 cups Wheat chex
3 cups Rice chex
1 cup mixed nuts or peanuts
1 cup pretzels
1 cup bagel chips
6T melted butter
2 T worcestershire
1.5 t seasoning salt
3/4 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder
Melt butter, stir in seasonings. Pour over cereal/nuts. Stir until evenly coated. Bake at 250 degrees for one hour, stiring every 15 minutes.

I don’t have one, but I want to follow this post. I have seen one on the back with taco seasoning that I’m trying this week! Will let you know how it comes out.

I have sweet recipes if you want them (caramel and white chocolate), but for the savory one I just go with the one on the box.

@coffeegal85: I have always used the one on the side of the box. Can’t go wrong with that!

Thanks for all the great ideas, ladies. Now, which version to go with…. maybe I need to make them all and taste test. Mmmm!
