Tasty Gift Idea: Homemade Chex Mix + coupons for supplies and our favorite recipe

by on December 10, 2012 in Coupon Alerts,Meal Planning & Recipes

We love to make Chex Mix at home during the holidays! It is a great gift for giving to family that live in other parts of the country, and it’s also fun to eat when the munchies hit!

My Kroger has Chex mix cereals on sale this week for $1.99, and here are some coupons that can help bring down the cost of supplies:

$1.00 off 2 PLANTERS Nut Products $1.00 off any TWO boxes Chex cereals

We usually make the original recipe, but they have TONS of variations now!

We like to do the oven version of the original recipe, and make a few changes. Here’s what we do:


  • 3 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 3 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 3 cups Wheat Chex cereal
  • 1 cup original Cheerios
  • 1 cup mixed nuts
  • 1 cup thin stick pretzels
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (maybe a touch more for extra flavor!)
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder


Heat oven to 250°F. In large bowl, mix cereals, nuts, and pretzels and set aside. In ungreased large roasting pan, melt butter in oven. Stir in seasonings (sauce, salt and powders). Gradually stir in cereal mixture until evenly coated. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool. Store in air-tight containers.
