Homemade Chex Mix Recipe


This favorite "TV mix" has been a family hit for years! Throw a batch together for your next large gathering. Your guests won't be able to get enough!

I’m almost a little hesitant to share this recipe.

No, not because of its addictive nature and unmatchable flavor. Not because it makes a HUGE batch and is easy to store, give away, or bring to a large group get-together. Nor for the reason that it will make your house smell AMAZING and your mouth water when it’s cooking in the oven. Nope. None of those reasons.

The reason I’m hesitant is because it’s a somewhat secret family recipe that we make EVERY Fall. I guess we’ve never declared it a secret but I don’t know of anyone else who makes this “TV Mix” as we like to call it.

This yummy snack was originally a recipe of my grandmas. I remember her always having it out and ready at family gatherings. I’m so glad my mom snagged the recipe and perfected it. I love that we can carry on the family tradition of making the TV mix together.

Yes, some of the ingredients aren’t 100% approved by the “real food” movement. But if you’re going to eat chex mix, at least this recipe has recognizable ingredients (other than what makes up the cereals).

You can add just about any kind of munchie to the cereal mixture. Some examples we’ve used in the past are: Crispix, pretzel fish, crushed garlic bagel chips, sesame seed sticks, pine nuts, etc.
