Best Oven-Baked Chex Mix



8 Tablespoons(1 stick) unsalted butter
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons seasoned salt, such as lawry’s
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

2 cups bagel chips
4 1/2 cups Rice Chex cereal
4 1/2 cups Wheat Chex cereal
3 cups bite-sized pretzels
1 cup roasted, salted peanuts


  1. Heat the oven to 250 degrees F. Arrange 2 racks to divide the oven into thirds and heat the oven to 250. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Make the seasoning mixture. Place 8 tablespoons unsalted butter in medium, microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring between each, until fully melted, 50-60 seconds total. (Alternatively, melt in a small saucepan on the stove top over low heat). Add:

    • 2 TBLS Worcestershire sauce,

    • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt,

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

    • 1 teaspoon onion powder, and whisk well to combined.

  3. Combined the Chex mix and toss:

    • 2 cups bagel chips in large bowl and lightly crush them

    • 4 1/2 cups Rich Chex

    • 4 1/2 cups Wheat Chex

    • 3 cups pretzels

    • 1 cup Roasted Peanuts.

  4. Toss the butter. Pour half of the butter mixture over the Chex mixture and gently toss to coat. Pour in the remaining butter mixture and gently toss again so all the pieces are coated in butter.

  5. Bake until lightly browned and crispy. Transfer the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until lightly browned and crisp, 45-50 minutes total. Let cool for 10 minutes on the backing sheets before serving.
