SUPER BOWL FOOD: Best Chex Recipe

Last fall, we tasted the five finalist recipes (out of 1,000 entries) in Chex Party Mix’s annual competition for the best 15-minute microwaved recipe. The 2010 winner has just been announced.

Our favorite of the five, Chex PB and Chocolate Blast, did not grab the gold. But here’s the recipe, made with Reese’s Pieces and white chocolate.

Karen Fisher’s winning Chex Cajun Kick snack mix recipe includes Creole seasoning and hot sauce.

(Future contestants please note: The 2009 winner was Buffalo Chex Mix with hot sauce. The recipe voters seem to like heat.)

You’ve got 15 minutes: Make some Chex mix. It can be made up to 2 weeks in advance.



  • 2 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 2 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups Wheat Chex cereal
  • 2 cups bite-size pretzel twists
  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (like Tabasco)
