ULTIMATE CHEX PARTY MIX — This classic party mix is elevated with the addition of a few special ingredients like Bugles and cheese crackers. It’s the perfect snack for game day, holiday gatherings, road trips and more!
I don’t know how this Ultimate Chex Party Mix became a seasonal snack at our house, but if I didn’t make it during the holidays, I’m afraid there would be a mutiny!
My family–especially the teenage boys–go through this stuff so fast, it’s hard to keep up with demand. It’s not much of an exaggeration to say I make Chex Mix by the truckload between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Okay, not the truckload…..but I always make a double or triple batch in my electric turkey roaster. You just can’t fit that much Chex Mix in the oven, and I actually prefer the turkey roaster because I just have to take the lid off and stir as needed.
The point is, we love this stuff, and I’ve added a few extra ingredients and perfected the recipe over the years so that it can truly be called a family favorite.
First of all, this recipe uses a little more butter and seasoning than the traditional recipe. You’ll want that extra flavor to balance out the additional ingredients, like Bugles, bagel chips, Goldfish crackers and Cheese-Its.
Of course, Chex Mix has always been a recipe that begs for adaptation, and these are just a few of our favorite additions. But I highly recommend the Bugles. They’re my absolute favorite ingredient!
I always have a bowl of this out during the holiday season, and my family just can’t get enough. Now that I have two boys in college, traditions like this are even more important when they’re home for a visit!
Of course, this Ultimate Chex Party Mix is perfect any time of year, whether it’s for game day, after school snacking, or any kind of celebration. So don’t wait! Make a batch (or a truckload) today!
