Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Party Mix

on December 23, 2013

Family get-togethers always felt like a party when Grandma was hosting, whether it was a holiday or not.

There was great food (as you can tell by the wonderful recipes we’ve been learning about here), there were always candles (I was the official candle lighter), and lots of warmth and love (I know that because of the wonderful memories I have of those get-togethers).

There are certain smells that bring back those great memories and the smell of this recipe is one of them.

Grandma had this recipe for Party Mix that’s a bit different than the regular Chex Party Mix recipe that’s on the box of Chex Cereal.

I love that it has a bit of sweet in it – that sweet/salty combo is so “in” right now.

Party Mix

I made 8 batches of this last year when I was bringing it to my son and his friends at college.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Party Mix

1 box of Rice Chex

1 box of Wheat Chex

1 cup stick pretzels

1 cup Cheerios cereal

3 cups Honey Nut Chex

1 pound mixed nuts and peanuts (it says 2 pounds of mixed nuts, but that seemed like a LOT of nuts, so I cut the amount in half)

3 teaspoons garlic salt

2 sticks butter (it says 1 pound of butter or 3 cups of oil on the card, but that seemed like a LOT of butter or oil, so I cut that in half, too)

3 Tablespoons Worchester sauce

1 teaspoon seasoning salt

1 teaspoon celery salt

1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt the butter, mix with Worchester sauce and other seasonings.

Mix all ingredients together.

Bake at 225 degrees for 2 hours.

Cool and store in airtight container.


We go through a lot of this stuff every holiday season.


The mix fit in two cake pans for baking.

I did stir them every 30 minutes just to make sure it was well mixed and that there was no sticking.


This is the classic snack mix we all grew up with.


Another great one for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years – or anytime.

I love that when you need a bit of salty with all of your holiday sweets, this mix is there for you.

It just wouldn’t be the holidays without this snack.
