This mildly seasoned snack mix is always a party favorite. Served warm from a slow cooker, the munchable mixture is very satisfying. —Dana Hughes, Gresham, Oregon

"The favor is very mild, but it seems to build and is still fairly addicting. If I have the ingredients, I will make it again and add more seasonings."

"SOOOO addicting!! When I make it, I use Crispix in place of the Chex cereal and also add 3 c. of cheese crackers (goldfish or Cheez-its). I use small pretzel twists (or goldfish pretzels) instead of pretzel sticks and I also increase the butter/margarine by 2T. and the Parmesan cheese to 6T. I put a paper towel over the top of the crockpot as it cooks to keep the condensation from dripping back down on it. Spread it on a cookie sheet to cool and crisp after it finishes.

I eat this for breakfast.... :) YUMMY!"

"Turned out just okay. Having to stir it every 20 minutes was kind of a pain."

"I use crispx cereal in place of the chex and

sesame sticks instead if pretezls. I add a little
soy sauce to the liquid mixture.
This mix is one of my family's favorites."

"Very good and simple recipe. I baked it in a 250º oven for one hour turning every 15 minutes. I added garlic salt and worcestershire and did not add the parmesan. Simple version of the original Chex Party Mix."
