  • 9 cups Rice, Corn, and Wheat Chex cereal (3 cups of each or any combination)
  • 2 cups mini pretzels
  • 2 cups cheese crackers or goldfish
  • 1 cup lightly salted peanuts
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Sriracha or other hot sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika


  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In an extra large mixing bowl, combine the cereal, peanuts, pretzels and cheese crackers.
  • Melt the butter in a small, microwave safe bowl or glass measuring cup. Add the soy sauce, hot sauce, garlic salt, onion powder and paprika and whisk until well combined.
  • Pour half of the butter mixture over the cereal mixture and toss well with a spatula or wooden spoon. Pour the remaining butter mixture over the cereal and toss well.
  • Spread the Chex mix out over two baking sheets and bake for 45-60 minutes, gently stirring every 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let sit for 20-30 minutes. Once the mix is completely cooled, serve, or store in an airtight container.


As long as it's stored in an airtight container, your Chex Party Mix will stay fresh for a couple of weeks. Do not refrigerate.
You can freeze Chex mix for up to three months and have this delicious snack ready to go when you are. It doesn't even take long to thaw!
