  • 9 cups chex mix
  • 2 cups pretzels
  • 1 cup Honey Nut Cheerios
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup buffalo-style hot sauce
  • 3-5 teaspoons Creole to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and then set aside.
  • In a bowl, you are going to add your Chex cereal, pretzels, peanuts, and Cheerios. Toss to mix up the snack mix.
  • In a microwave safe bowl you will add butter and melt in the microwave. Then you will pour in the buffalo sauce. Stir well until the butter mixture is mixed.
  • Pour the buffalo sauce mixture in the bowl with the Chex, and stir until full coated.
  • Pour the Chex cereal mix on the baking sheet evenly. Then sprinkle the mix with the Creole seasoning all over the top of the mixture.
  • Bake the Chex party mix for 10-15 minutes or until the Chex is dry to the touch.
  • Once done, allow the party mix to cool and then store in an airtight container or sealable bag.


You can use any flavor of Chex cereal. I prefer to use rice or corn Chex, but feel free to use what you want. Or do a mix.
You can do less buffalo sauce and Creole if you don't want the mixture as spicy.
The Chex mix has to be dried once baked, otherwise it will soften and go bad fast. Just pull it from the oven before it browns.
You can add other ingredients into this party mix if you want.
