Original Oven Homemade Chex Mix (Buonpane Family)


Your family & friends will ask for Homemade Oven baked Chex™ Mix over & over. Easy to toss together and fun to make with the kids.


Units Scale
  1. 4 cups Corn Chex™ cereal
  2. 4 cups Rice Chex™ cereal
  3. 4 cups Cap’n Crunch™ cereal
  4. 1 cup Wheat Chex™ cereal
  5. 1 cup of mini Pretzels (very small)
  6. 2 cups Honey Roasted Peanuts
  7. 3 cups Bagel Chips Gardetto Garlic Rye Chips
  8. 8 TLB Butter
  9. 3 TBL Worcestershire sauce
  10. 1 1/2 tsp Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
  11. 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  12. 1/2 tsp Onion Powder


  1. Heat the oven to 250°
  2. Measure out each of the cereal, nuts, pretzels, and bagel chips toss in a very large bowl. Make sure your bowl is larger than you think you need.  As you add it gets harder to mix if in a too small bowl.
  3. In a glass measuring cup melt the butter in the microwave 30 seconds at a time until completely melted.
  4. Mix in the Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to the butter.
  5. Pour the butter mixture over the dry ingredients a little at a time mixing and tossing well.
  6. Transfer the Chex™mix to your big oven roaster, or you can transfer to several baking sheets lined with foil.
  7. Bake in the oven at 250° for 1 hour and 15 minutes (may need 1 hour & 30 minutes if you are tripling the recipe).
  8. Every 15 minutes, carefully open the oven and stir to make it extra crispy and keep it from sticking together. (do not skip this)


  • Update for 2019: I double the ingredients #8 – #12 for the single recipe, as my family likes it a little more spicy.
  • I increased some of the seasonings as we used larger amounts of cereal.
  • Remember to use whatever cereal your family likes if they like more wheat Chex™ and less corn, make it your own.
  • Let me know what you like in your mix.
  • Update 2022: Big batch for Katie’s 30th Birthday Party: 8 cups of corn Chex, 8 cups of rice Chex, 8 cups of Cap’n Crunch, no wheat Chex, 1 (12.4 oz) box of Cheddar Jack Cheez-it, 1 cup of Honey roasted Peanuts, one bag of Bagel Chips, 4 sticks of butter, 2/3 Worcestershire sauce, 4 tablespoons of Lawry’s seasoned salt, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon onion powder. I had to put in my large roaster pan and 1 13×9 pan to get it all to fit in the oven.
