Chex Party Mix

Randy's favorite game-day snack is Chex Mix, but not the kind you buy already made and packaged. He insists that it's just not the same. His favorite day to watch is Saturday, because all the college teams are playing. His favorite, of course, is Texas A&M. (Gig 'Em!) He also likes to watch t.u. lose (sorry, Uncle Doug) and in general likes watching any good rivalry or evenly matched college game. Oh, and when watching NFL, he roots for the New Orleans Saints, since he was born there. It drives me crazy, but his favorite weekend is Bowl Weekend. So can I come over and watch a good movie at your house that weekend? Or any weekend between now and then? :)

Chex Party Mix

6 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ tsp. seasoned salt
¾ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. onion powder
3 cups Corn Chex
3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Wheat Chex
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup pretzels
1 cup garlic-flavor bite-size bagel chips or regular-size bagel chips, broken into 1-inch pieces

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Melt margarine in large roasting pan in oven. Stir in seasonings. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients until evenly coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container. 12 cups snack.


  1. I agree with Randy. The store bought is not the same. Thanks for sharing. And yes, you can come watch with me. They can watch in one room and we non-football lovers can watch movies in another.

  2. Ditto about the store bought not being nearly as good!
    Can I join you for the movie! I hate to admit it, but I really hate football. It's too noisy and confusing!

  3. This sounds wonderful. Perfect game or party food. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took sometime to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. You've created a great spot for your readers to visit and I really enjoyed the time I spent here. I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day Blessings...Mary
