Easy Chex Mix Recipe

Chex Mix RecipeThis is the view from my desk.  It’s officially holiday crunch time.  Literally and figuratively.

Every year (but, it’s become more of a year-round recipe), my gram or parents make a batch of this.  We eat it for breakfast, for lunch, as a snack, for dinner…  Chex Mix.  It saves during the holiday hustle.  I’m not saying it’s healthy.  There’s a ton of butter in it.  But, I love it because it’s filling plus I get fiber and protein.  Be warned, this recipe is pretty simple on flavor too.  That’s another reason I actually love it.  I’ve tried the other recipes, but quickly I get tired of the ranch seasoning or whatever spices are in it.

This makes a ton–you could always half it.  Enjoy!

  • 1 box each of rice, corn and wheat cereals (the smaller boxes–not the huge ones)
  • 1 stick + 1/4 stick of butter
  • 1 1/4 C. Worsteshire
  • Large can of peanuts
  • Red hots (optional)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

Pour all of the cereals and nuts into a big pan and toss.

Melt the butter, mix with the Worsteshire, then pour over the mix.


Bake 15-20 mins stir, repeat 3 to 4 more times

Let cool and store in tins.  You can also add in red hots.


  1. I so enjoy your videos (the projects too)! Just read in the last few days that the average person gains between 8 to 10 pounds during the Christmas holidays! That won’t stop me from grazing though!
