This Christmas Chex Mix is crunchy, salty and seriously Addicting!Jump to Recipe
It’s Christmas Time! My very favourite time of the year. In my family it isn’t Christmas without this super Addicting Christmas Chex Mix!
I love how every family is different; we all have our own traditions. My family has made this delicious and Addicting Christmas Chex Mix for years; the ingredients may change every Christmas but the excitement over this crunchy snack remains the same.
Does your family have a special tradition?
My grandma gives out Christmas Chex Mix as gifts every single year. We love it so much! This year I heard rumours she had decided not to make it, but everyone she told freaked out and begged her to continue on the tradition. It simply would not be the same without this yummy snack.
I hope you love this as much as my family does! Make a double batch, load them up in cute Christmas tins and give them away as gifts to friends and family.
What are the ingredients for Chex Mix?
Chex Mix is so much fun because you can add whatever ingredients you like!
In this Addicting Christmas Chex Mix there is Chex, Shreddies, pretzels, BBQ peanuts, butter, worcestershire, sea salt, chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder.
How do you make Christmas Chex Mix?
There are two popular ways to make snack mix. One involves using a microwave, the other an oven. I’ve never tried it in a microwave as I don’t think it would turn out nice and toasty… If you want to try the microwave way, there are recipes out there you can follow, otherwise this is how it’s done in the oven:
Preheat oven to 250°. Melt the butter and pour into a large mixing bowl. Mix in the spices then add the remaining ingredients. Mix well then spread evenly over two baking sheets.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes to ensure even baking. Cool completely before storing in an air tight container.
How long does homemade Chex Mix last?
If you are like me and want to make a huge batch to give away as gifts for your friends and family, or you would like this Addicting Christmas Chex Mix to last all season long, you’ll be making this around the beginning of December.
So how far in advance can you make it?
Homemade Christmas Chex Mix will last 4-6 weeks if kept in an air tight container! Amazing right? Just make sure the lid is on there nice and tight in between servings.
Does Chex Mix freeze well?
You bet it does!
Do you want to be super on top of things and make this in October or November? You’re in luck!
If kept in a properly sealed freezer safe ziplock bag, this Christmas Chex Mix will last 4-6 months in the freezer!
