To me, the holiday season just doesn’t feel like Christmas without the crunchy, salty taste of Chex Mix to balance out all the sweetness from cookies and other holiday foods. Make Chex Mix even easier with this Crock Pot Chex Mix recipe.Crock Pot Chex Mix recipe

When I was a kid, my mom was awesome at making delicious Chex Mix every holiday season. She even made us personalized batches (no peanuts for my husband and double-the-nuts batches for those of us who absolutely love nuts).

Crock Pot Chex Mix keeps beautifully in the freezer if you plan to make several batches on a day when you know you will be home. With this crock pot Chex Mix recipe, you can even make several batches at a time if you wish. (Make one in the crock pot and one in the oven, or even try your Instant Pot on “slow cook” mode!)

 

Low Fat Chex Mix Alternative

Reduce or eliminate the butter and use cooking spray instead for a lower fat alternative.
