Savory Chex Cereal Mix

We always make cereal snack mixes over the holidays. Sometimes they are a bit sweet, but usually we indulge in this salty and savory combination.


  • 3 cups corn Chex cereal
  • 3 cups wheat Chex cereal
  • 2 cups Cheerios cereal
  • 1 6.6-ounce bag Goldfish crackers
  • 1 cup nuts I used dry, roasted peanuts and slivered almonds
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Combine cereal, crackers, and nuts in a large roasting pan.
  • Melt butter. Add mustard, basil, onion powder, salt, and vinegar. Stir to combine.
  • Pour over cereal mixture and gently stir to mix well.
  • Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
