A few weeks ago one my co-workers who was leaving the system brought a bag of chex mix as a “thank you” and departing gift. It was easily the BEST chex mix I’ve ever had!!! Absolutely delicious. Below is the recipe and the great thing about it is that you can tweak it to your tastes. I didn’t want as many wheat thins so I took it from 3 boxes to 1 and upped the quantities of gold fish, vegetable thins, combos and cheez-its. An added bonus? NO baking required. This makes A LOT of chex mix so if you have a family event coming up it works perfectly! I made it for our weekend away in the Black Hills.
2 pkg Gold Fish
1 big box Chex Cereal
1 box of wheat Chex
1 boxes Ranch Wheat Thins
1 can of cashews (or more if you like more nuts!)
2 boxes Vegetable Thins
2 boxes of Cheez-its
3 bags Combos (pretzel with cheese center)
1 bag pretzels (sticks or whatever shape you prefer)
1 pkg oyster crackers
1 bottle Orville Redenbacker Flavored Popcorn Oil
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp onion salt
Directions: Put all ingredients in 2 tall kitchen garbage bags. Add flavoring. Mix the bags 3-4 times in 5-6 hours. Remember: this makes A LOT of Chex Mix and it Freezes well!
