  • You can also do this in the oven. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Place the seasoned mixture in a large roasting pan or a couple of bordered baking sheets. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  • When I make it in the oven, I melt the butter on the roasting tray while the oven preheats. Once melted, I stir the seasonings in the butter, then add the ingredients of the snack mixture and mix to cover evenly.
  • Be sure to place paper towels under the lid while cooking. This will absorb any condensation and prevent the Chex mixture from getting wet and soaked.
  • The Crockpot Chex mixture can burn, so stick to the cooking time of the recipe.


  • You can customize this snack mix to your personal preference. A whole flavor of cereal, oyster crackers, cheese crackers, bagel chips, goldfish crackers, cornnuts, sesame sticks or Cheerios.
  • You can make it spicy by adding a tablespoon of hot sauce to the butter mixture or 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
