  • 3 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 3 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 11/2 cups Wheat Chex cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups oyster crackers
  • 1 cup cheese crackers
  • 1 cup pretzel twists
  • 1 cup mixed nuts
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt I highly recommend Penzeys smoky seasoned salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder


  • Place the cereal, crackers, pretzels and nuts into a large microwave safe bowl.
  • Mix together the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt and onion powder.
  • Pour the butter mixture over the cereal and toss to coat evenly.
  • Microwave for 5-6 minutes, stirring thoroughly every 2 minutes; then spread onto paper towels to cool.
  • Serve immediately or store in a sealed container for up to 1 week.



  1. You can omit the nuts and use more of the crackers and pretzels in the same quantities if allergies are a concern.
  2. When I make this chex mix for kids, I often use the rainbow colored goldfish crackers instead of standard cheese crackers to make it more fun and eye catching!
