This Chex Mix Recipe has been in my family for years and years. My mom, Susie, knows how to make a goooooood Chex Party Mix. I actually offended her recently when I said ‘Hey we should make Grandma Gall’s party mix for the blog…the one she used to put out every Christmas’. She corrected me VERY quickly. Apparently this is SUSIE’S party mix :).
I like to call it the BEST EVER CHEX PARTY MIX RECIPE. It…is…really really good. It is so addicting. Ask my dad. He always gets to it first and takes all of the cashews. Bottom line is–you will love this party mix. You’ll never eat store-bought Chex Mix, Gardettos (You ARE allowed to eat our Homemade Gardetto’s Recipe however!), or any of those other varieties again. You won’t need to! It’s so easy to make at home and so much tastier. Try it to believe it!

How many calories are in Chex Party Mix?
We have calculated below that each portion of this Chex Party Mix is approximately 200 calories. This recipe makes 17-18 cups of party mix…so I’m using a heaping handful as a serving. If you’re my dad…then you eat about 5 servings in a sitting. But I definitely don’t recommend that. :)
How long with this Chex Mix Recipe keep?
Properly stored in an airtight container, this Chex Mix Recipe should keep 4-6 weeks if sealed each and every time. You can also freeze it in freezer friendly bags for 4-6 months. DELISH!
What ingredients are in Seasoned Salt?
There are a ton of spices in seasoned salt, so I always recommend just buying the pre-made stuff at the grocery store. If you do want to make your own at home, you definitely can. It’s a mix of salt, sugar, paprika, turmeric, onion powder, and garlic.
This Chex Party Mix really does bring back memories of Christmas. My mom would have it every year and we would snack on it while watching movies together, playing games, or opening presents. (Looking back on it…popcorn probably would have been the healthier alternative…) If you ask me what snack mix I crave more than anything, it will always be this Best Ever Chex Party Mix!
